My dear Rosemary.
Sunday once more and at last it looks as tho’ the thaw has begun.
It is much warmer here today & there has been a considerable thaw which we all hope will continue although the Radio says that a blizzard is raging in Yorkshire.
Still I’m hopeful that the worst of the cold is past & that we shall soon get some mild weather to cheer us all.
I’v [sic] been wondering during the week what the conditions were

[underlined] 2 [/underlined]
like at Darley Dale, from what I’v [sic] read & been told the snow in Derbyshire is as bad as ever, so I can imagine that you will be thoroughly tired of it by now.
As you know Grandma Gomersall is staying with us & I’m glad to say that we are all well.
I do hope my dear that you are quite well & happy.
How are lessons & prep. going along? I trust that you do not find them too hard work my dear & that you are do [sic] well & feeling satisfied with your progress.

By the way, did you manage to go to the concert on Friday? I expect that the heavy snowfall would prevent it.
Mummy is sending you a parcel of apples & oranges, she will send you some jam & sweets during the week, when she has got these and we hope that you will enjoy them dear.
We were glad to hear that you had finished your mits and that they were so admired, its quite amusing to have started a fashion eh! & I hope that your friends at school will enjoy making themselves pairs but they will have to hurry or they will be too late to use them this winter.

Mummy & I went to see the film “Virginen” [sic] last night, it is in Technicolour & quite pleasant but not very thrilling.
There is a sweet little girl in it about four years old who was very good.
Auntie Ruth at Coniston Cold has got another baby boy so now she & Uncle Edward have [deleted] [indecipherable letter] [/deleted] three boys and Grandma Gomersall has ten grandsons and four granddaughters.
Well my dear daughter that is all the news for the present so I will close this letter with lots of love from us all to you.
Goodnight & God bless you my dear.
Your ever loving,
Daddy.
