My dear Kathleen,
I am so very sorry to hear you have had bad news of Ian, but sincerely pray he is safe & a probable prisoner, even that is better than the anguish of wondering where he is.
Don’t give up hope Kath, I feel somehow he is safe, & will soon be home with you again.
George and I have said several times lately we hoped he had done all his operational trips
[Page break]
& was grounded for a time, it has been a terrible time for you.
I am not much good at writing this kind of letter, but I do most sincerely grieve for you & will pray for you & the children, but still hoping for the best.
If you feel you would like a rest & change from Horley I should be delighted for you to come for a bit.
Perhapes [sic] fresh surroundings would do you good.
Yours very sincerely
[Underlined] Bessie & George [/underlined]
