9 February – Ted to Jane

09 Feb

Feb 9th

Dear Jinny.

Still got an awful cold, & I have eaten or sucked most of the lozenges & jubejubes in the rgt; but I am better, & will soon be as right as rain. So will you please send me 1 bottle formaloids, 1 tin eucalyptus jubejubes or anything good for a cough or cold. You can get them from Boots I think.

Not much going on here. It’s very cold, especially the wind. It rained a bit today too. Hair growing like anything under the new treatment.

Tons of love from Ted
