GILBERT ROAD,
HALE, CHESHIRE.
My [underlined] dear Rosemary [/underlined]
Many thanks for your letter dear and I am glad to hear that most of the girls are going home for Half Term altho’ I must say that I’m surprised.
I have tonight written to Miss Stopford saying that you will come home.
Enclosed please find £1. ie [sic] two 10/- notes to cover your travelling expenses etc.
Please do not think that Mummy & I did not [underlined] want [/underlined] you to come home my dear girl
[page break]
we imagined that all the girls would remain at school on account of the uncertainty of Railway travel at the present time & also its delays & discomfort which we wished you to be spared.
Make sure that you wear your warmest clothes as the train may [underlined] not [/underlined] be heated & the journey may be prolonged.
As Mummy has to go to the Dentist on Friday afternoon you had better come straight home from Manchester.
You must get a ticket at the booking office for Hale & catch the first train home.
I hope that Jane Cox may be doing the same & so be
[page break]
[underlined] 3 [/underlined]
able to accompany you but in any case I’m sure that you will be able to take care of yourself and know what to do.
If you have to wait for a train to Hale go into the Restaurant any [sic] get some tea but be sure to get the first train that you can.
I hope that you will have a good journey my dear and we are all looking forward to seeing you home again.
With all our love to you sweetheart I remain ever your loving
Daddy.
