Darling,
Many thanks for your letter to hand this morning, but why enclose the Xmas card Envelope. I am going to send it back in it. I conclude from the Post frank [deleted] mark [/deleted] that it was from Joan. The weather has been just fog here for the last 3 days but today it has cleared up and we have been up for 1 hr (over Skegness)
I have got to go to our plane (K is the letter) this afternoon & check over one or two little jobs. So I am snatching a few moments to get this off to you. A week tonight I hope to be on my way home. That will be good. I am afraid I shall have to have a day at Wyrley though darling as much as I don’t want to. I really don’t [sic] know what to do about the car? It is quite a problem. I feel that if I could get a good price, I would sell the damned thing

[page break]

By the way when are you going to answer my query Re- your allowance That is the allowance for you and the two boys. Independent of that [underlined] 17/6 [/underlined] Also the form that you have should be filled up by me I think
I am enclosing this newspaper cutting for your guidance.
Well beloved, heres [sic] all my love for Ever & Ever
Just yours
Ian
