Dear David,
I am posting back your scarf as I think perhaps you will need it and I shall not be able to send the trousers back for ten days or a fortnight as I am going to send them to the Laundry for you. Thank you for the bicycle lamps that came as well. I will keep them for you as we rarely bicycle in the black out.
