Dear Kath,
Many thanks for your letter received this morning, I seem to have had quite a mail all at once.
I am sorry to hear that your Mother isn’t well and hope her leg will soon be all right again and I hope David and Tony soon get rid of their colds. I think it must have been me that gave them to them and I am sure David at least gets enough without me.
I hope you managed to get along to the Hospital and was able to see John, I had a letter from Auntie Laura and Mrs Turner on Saturday and they said that he was going on very well indeed and the Hospital people

had written to Bessie and told her [deleted] that [/deleted] what they were feeding him oN, [sic] she says that she will go for him Tuesday or Wednesday before Christmas, I hope I can get home shortly for his Christening
The two fellows that I work with have been very good to me and taken me with them where ever they have gone and I am feeling quite a bit better.
Will you send Ian’s address when you write again please, Kath, but I will perhaps have a letter from him within the next few days.
If you see anything of Mr Turner during the next few days will you ask him to send me the letter I had from my Uncle Jack from Southport, I have just sealed the letter to Mr Turner. (Don’t make a special journey!)
I went into the Town on Saturday afternoon to see if I could

find anything for Christmas but it was just like Chester and everything was too expensive.
I will close now hoping to hear from you again soon.
Love to all
Bert
X David
X Tony
P.S. Please note the new address. B.
