St. Andrew’s
May 19th. 43.
My dear Joyce
Dorothy wrote yesterday & told me about David’s D.S.O.. Isn’t it splendid - I do feel quite set up with pride and pleasure! I don’t know David’s address so I must just leave it to you to pass this on to him. I am so glad.
I am spending two comfortable days with nothing to do except enjoy myself with the Head of St. Leonards School St. Andrews. This is a lovely old house – weather, after being incredibly bad nearly all the time for three weeks, has quite suddenly become perfect and St. Andrews – which is always like a little old grey town out of a fairy-tale – is almost too good to be true. But all along the sea-front the trees & flowering shrubs look as if they had been scorched – scarcely a leaf or a flower, from the terrible N.E. gale of Saturday week. I was at Aberdeen & it was awful.
I shall be back on the 25th – but I
[page break]
am very much afraid I shall be too late to see you & Frances. I [underlined] am [/underlined] so sorry. Anyhow this brings much love to you all three & please tell David how awfully pleased I am.
This doesn’t need an answer you know!
.With love from.
Nettie
