My Darling,
I’m thoroughly bloody disgusted with these camp telephones.
I almost put my foot through one tonight. What did you think of it. Blasted thing.
My love overcame the scotch in me dearest and I spent another sixpence to get through to you – by which time, however, you had gone – left – buggered off as it were and I became bitterly [deleted] disappoint [/deleted] (damned page isn’t wide enough. Oh hang it) disappointed.
I do so much want to see you darling – please believe me and I’m so impossibly and hopelessly in love I don’t hold myself responsible for my actions half the time. I’m in a hellish mood now in fact and to crown it our fire is almost out and Don has pinched our coal – [underlined] all [/underlined] of it mind you, [underlined] All [/underlined] of it!! Hell.
I hope I manage to phone you tomorrow darling to make some arrangements [deleted] se [/deleted] to see you again.
The bottom looms in sight kid so I must spend a penny & turn in. All my fondest love darling and oodles of kisses, Ever yrs Malcolm
