Darling
Just a line or two to let you know I am still fit and well, and have not been operating for the last two nights which has given me a chance to catch up on some sleep.
Have I written to you since I went to Berlin well I have been on all the shows since then Essen however, was the best by the far. [sic] It was certainly [underlined] colossal. [\underlined] If it had not been for the weather conditions we would have been there again. I have now done 17 trips I am getting there in no mean fashion.
Well dearest I am brassed off & wish the bloody war was in hell I am so looking forward to the time when you can be with me

[page break]

again also the boys too.
I am very pleased to hear that David is coping with his byke. [sic] It just shows that if he really wants to do something he can. It should do his legs good too.
Oh! I am glad you mentioned those pyjamas. I would be glad if you would send them as soon as possible
Well beloved I must close now with all my love.
Always yours
Ian. xxx
