Manchester a few weeks ago. How are your family? I suppose they are quite grown up. I heard Margaret was engaged she was only a little school girl when I last saw her I can hardly believe it, is she engaged to a Mr Doves son who used to live in Heaton Moor. We used to know all the family before I was married when I lived there. Please give her my love and very best wishes. How is Rosemary? I suppose I would not recognise her now. Pat has not forgotten her and remembers the happy times we had together. Pat will be thirteen in a fortnight and Nicholas is eight.

sent the children up north for a few months. How glad we shall all be when this war is over and we are back to normal. I should be so pleased to see you if you are in London anytime even if you can’t spare the time to come out here I could spend a [sic] hour with you in town if you ring me up.
Do you ever hear from Mrs Swifft? I have not heard of her for a long time.
We sold our house in Hale so have not an excuse to come now, but I had some very happy times there and will always have a soft
