They all were sorry that you were not present my dear, but we had an enjoyable time with a nice meal, good wines, music & dancing, in fact quite a celebration.

poorly with an upset tummy, and now Grandma & Margaret have the same thing but Mummy is better.
Please take care of your health my dear and try not to get a chill, particularly after playing Hockey or some other outside game which gets you hot.
Always have a warm coat or sweater to put on & prevent a chill starting.
In particular start wearing your stockings now if you have not already done so.
Mummy is sending a parcel of fruit & sweets to you dare & I hope that you will

Bateman said that a fairey [sic] had left you two bars of chocolate, but as Mummy knew that you did’nt [sic] like them she came in for the treat.
We are going to see “Ceasar [sic] & Cleopatra” at the Cinema next Saturday.
Bateman has been planting bulbs and he has put some in a bowl for you to take back to school.
Well my dear daughter I will say bye-bye with lots of love from us all to you
Your loving
