My dear Rosemary
We were glad to receive your letter of Thursday & to know that you are settled down my dear also that you had spoken with Miss Stopford.
I hope that the socks Coathangers & Stamps reached you safely.
Mummy is sending you some sweets tomorrow and I think that you will enjoy them.
I’v [sic] been wondering how you are arranged for sleeping this

[underlined] 2. [/underlined]
term are you in a dormatory [sic] or a cubical I hope that you are comfortable my dear.
We had a letter from Uncle Alan this week and he sends his love to you.
The Pullets are doing quite well altho’ No. 1. has been off colour & has so far laid only two eggs Nos 2 & 3 have laid 5 each & No 4. 7.
I think that No.1. is getting better, Mummy thinks that it was a chill or it may have been frightened during the journey & not got over it so quickly as the others.
Mummy seems to have got the feeding well in hand

and all of them enjoy their food.
I expect that it was nice to be back at school & to see your friends again & discuss the holidays.
I do hope that this will be a nice term in spite of the hard work you will have to do in preparation for the examinations.
If only the weather would cheer up & let us have some nice warm sunshine we should all of us feel better for it.
Mummy & I saw a good film “I met a dark stranger” which we enjoyed, it was both exciting & amusing

and it was a British film I’m glad to say.
There does’nt [sic] seem to be much in the way of news since you went back to school.
We are all well & I hope that you are too and that you will be able to keep fit during the term.
With love from us all I remain ever you [sic] loving
Daddy.
