Saturday 20th March.

My Darling,
Just a line in haste to let you know that I have received your letters OK, (but I am [underlined] urgently [/underlined] in need of [underlined] pygamas [sic] [/underlined]) You should have had mine before Friday anyway. You remember that last parcel I sent to you? Well I have a similar one to come at any time now. Ill [sic] send it with my Dirty Pygamas [sic] So hurry up with my clean ones please because these are awful.
Well dearest I have not operated since we have been here yet but at the same time have not been out much to have a look round. I will let you have the full details as soon as I can get organised.

[page break]

I am pleased to hear the boys are O.K & that you [sic] face is getting normal. I wonder what it is like to go to bed with a toothless hag.
The weather has been marvellous up to the last hr or so here & it has clouded over now though. Almost summer weather really.
Well my love I must scoot now. I wrote to aunt Jessie & Rex & Glents the night before last. [underlined] quite [/underlined] a big effort for me was that.
Cheerio darling but I wish you were here
All my love dearest
Yours ever,
[underlined] Ian [/underlined]
