Thank you for your letter – glad you liked the photograph. I seem to be getting that habit of mine again-
Bee Dudman sent me two parcels of fruit the other day, one of plums & another of red currants – an enormous amount of each – they were awfully good – the currants were a bit squashed though – was’nt it awfully nice of them-
Yes you must try & get down to Pitney when Ted goes away – a change would do you a lot of good.
I am glad to hear Jane has got another job – as you say jolly tiring I should think – standing up all day long and fairly long hours too.
So old James was over for the week end – he has’nt been to Delaford for ages has he?
Nothing much doing up our way as yet – I am wondering whether the anniversary is going to bring us something – I do hope so.
We are absolutely out of quarantine for mumps & measles now – which is a good thing as now we can visit a few of our friends in other ships.
I believe I’ve discovered the whereabouts of that sea chest of mine that I told you about – with all my clothes in it-. I’m not absolutely certain though but I believe it’s at Devonport somewhere.
Afraid this is rather a short letter – I am awfully fit and well, except for a hack on the shin at football to-day.
With very much love to you all
from your ever loving son
