TUESDAY. 11th MARCH 47
Dear Rosemary. We were very pleased to receive your letter written on Saturday and to know that you are well my dear. You will have received my letter by now and also the parcel of fruit I hope./ Mummy is sending a tin of Jam which I shall post tomorrow morning with this P.C./ I’m glad that you got to the concert at Sheffield in spite of the snow but sorry that [indecipherable word] did’nt turn up, I expect that he was snowbound Glad to hear that the French Orals & diets: went off all right Mummy is sorry that she is still unable to obtain any sweets which you would like/ Margaret thanks you for your letter which she was glad to receive / the thaw has cleared the snow away around here how is it going at Darley Dale? I expect it will take a long time to clear it away there./ We are all well I’m glad to say & I hope that you are the same darling./
With much love from us all. Daddy.
