Dearest,
Thanks for the parcel & leter [sic] which I received yesterday (also the Wine). The delay was at this end & the Waaf [sic] officer who is in charge of the Roy’ [sic] [Royal] Mail Dept [Department] had gone on leave without appointing a deputy. She was recalled yesterday & hauled over the Coals. I contributed to the agony by reporting my delay etc.
Thanks again for the Pills wallet and Cig case not forgetting the onion too I am looking forward to my supper tonight. We are still quite busy here yet. I have not yet done any Cross Country flying may do a short trip tomorrow though. We are likely to pass near Delamaine on one of our trips but as I have

[page break]

The Sq [Squadron] /Leader for a pilot I doubt if I can get him to “Woble [sic] his wings” Still we will see what we can do when the time comes.
The weather here at the moment is mild here but mainly Misty which rather spoils local flying. The other chaps have come back off leave in the billet so things will be a bit more [corrected] cheerfull [/corrected] although they are not too cheerful as you may guess.
I was pleased to hear that the boys were OK & of course yourself. That Cold cure is really a preventative. It is “MIDGLEY’S ANTI-GRIPPE” sold by Taylors or Timothy Whites. Excellent stuff

Touching would [sic] my [indecipherable] is better so I shall not have to take any pills for a bit I hope. Well dearest I will close now

With all my love
[underlined] Yours Ian [/underlined]
