parcel for you tonight, in it are a letter from Godmother with some snaps which she wishes you to return to her when you have seen them also you [sic] music, shampoo, socks & some sweets (Gums)
Mummy will send the parcel separately.
How do you find your duties as a Monitress? I expect that it will be difficult at first but my advice is to go gently.
Are you coached in your duties? or is it assumed that you know from experience of the Monitress’ who have looked after you in the past.

Margaret came in for lunch, her cold is improving and she sends her love to you.
Emily has gone to see her friend at Eccles, altho’ it is a windy, blustery day.
Mummy has been busy as usual, she is a darling and always doing everything she can for all of us.
