My Darling,
I’m sitting up in bed – almost dead – and am about to warn you this is going to be ever such a short note. You may be able to tell by my writing that I’m going like Hell Pet so that I may catch up on a wee bit more sleep. It’s not sunset yet either.
Well darling we’re here. Don’t we know it. I think we’ll be much more comfortable [deleted] that [/deleted] than at Wigsley
The camp is practically the same as Scampton but is frightfully untidy.
(like me!).

Darling, I love you over and over again and I believe now you know it.
I didn’t get a chance to give you a tinkle this morning – duty having the first say an’ all ‘at y’know
I know you will have forgiven me though Pet long ‘ere this. Please. xx
I have just finished an Air-Graph to Mother telling her [underlined] what I did [/underlined]? [inserted] good [underlined] grammar [/underlined] [/inserted] during my leave. Well – almost. Had I not written her tonight my conscience would have pricked me so much
