My dear Kathleen.
I feel I must write you a few lines: as Freds [sic] mother told me that Ian was missing. It is very hard, sometimes, to express on paper just what one feels; but I do hope & pray that you will soon hear good news. I have great admiration for the wive’s [sic] of men who fly: for their anxiety & sacrifice is much greater than that of the others. We are all in the front-line; but as I say, your anxieties over a long period are [underlined] very [/underlined] much

More than mine or others in the same position as myself: my worries are as nought compared with yours. However, Kathleen trust in God & wait hopefully for news: Im [sic] sure Good news [underlined] will [/underlined] come: & try & keep your chin up as Ian would have you do. I shall remember you in my prayers. It was very kind of you to ask David to come & play with your kiddies the last time we were over: & I fully intended coming, but there were so many relations to visit the time passed all too quickly; but when we come to Norley to stay a day or two perhaps we can arrange

something then.
I was wondering whether you would like to come here for a few days, Kathleen. I go away on June 26 for a week, & was wondering if you would like to spend a few days the 2nd week in July: you havent [sic] been before & I thought it might be a change.
I do hope the kiddies are keeping well; & your Mother & Father also.
Well, Kathleen, as I say words are hard to say, even on paper; but you know what this letter is meant to convey, so; hoping you will hear
[inserted] 4. [/inserted]

Good news soon: God bless you & yours: & do try & keep Smiling.
I remain,
Yours very Sincerely.
[underlined] Mabel, & Fred. [/underlined]
