Dear Mother.

V. many thanks for your letter from Chichester – could’nt think for the moment when I saw the post mark what you were doing there. So glad you like it. Sounds an awfully nice place.

Nothing much doing up our way now. We are having simply gorgeous weather – & I’ve been ashore & played golf & rugger once or twice. I sprained my little finger the other day playing rugger – & it swelled up so much, I had to have my ring cut off – rather painful before-

My rash I am glad to say has practically all gone – I have been dieting myself fairly carefully on fish & no meat – & I think that has done more good than anything else.

My best love to you all

Your ever loving son
