My [underlined] dear Rosemary [/underlined]
We were very glad to get your letter written on Wednesday and to know that your Orals went off satisfactorily my dear.
I’m sorry that you were nervous before they started but I suppose that everyone is more or less anxious before an examination.
Try and be confident because I’m sure that you will not find the examinations difficult and you are certain to pass them so why be worried my dear girl, if you can gain confidence you will do better & find them easier
Are you getting any extra tuition in Chemistry & Latin also I’d like to know whether the tuition you had during the holidays

has had a helpful effect or not.
I’m so glad to know that you enjoyed the Ascension day outing and that the weather so nice I had got a bit mixed up & thought that it was to be during the previous week so I expect that my letter of last Sunday was rather inexplicable to you.
I hope that the snapshot you, Di & Maughty turns out well as I should like to have one.
Mummy has got a role of Film for you, have you used up the one you took to school.
Mummy is sending you some jam & some sweets tomorrow.
By the way did you receive the £1 note she sent to you during last week?
We will drive over next Sunday & I trust that the weather

will be good so that we can have a nice time together & we shall be pleased to have Di & Maughty with us as you suggest.
We will bring the things you ask for in your letter my dear.
Margaret & John have been to see us this evening and they are both quite well.
Their house is getting along well now & the [sic] should be in it next month, I hope that they will be comfortable and happy there.
The Pullets are O.K. except No. 1. which still does not lay, the other three are laying quite well.
I moved them out of the garage into the garden now that the weather is better & I hope that they will flourish there although

does’nt [sic] seem to like the idea of them being outside.
However we shall just have to wait & see how they get along, personally I think that they will like it.
We are all quite well at home I’m pleased to say and I hope that you are in the best of health dear.
Mummy & I send our best love to you in which we are joined by Grandma and Emily.
Well bye-bye for the present & looking forward to next Sunday I remain ever your loving
