Dear Mother – I’m hustled beyond everything – all this being appointed away etc etc – and I am ever so busy finishing up on board here – I have’nt had a moment to write to anyone – I’m feeling fearfully guilty – but it can’t be helped.

I do thank you all for your lovely Christmas presents – really they were too ripping – will you tell the girls how much I liked them – & say I hope to see them either Saturday or Sunday – because I shall stop on my way down to [censored?] where I told you.

But things are uncertain yet – & I’ve heaps to do – yet.

I had a lovely Christmas – ever so cheery we were –

I have’nt got time for any more – I’ll explain everything when I see you-

best love – your ever loving son
