Dear David
I do feel so bad at never having written to congratulate you on your D.S.O. I was most frightfully pleased when I heard of it & feel very proud indeed of you. I was also delighted last Sunday when your Mother presented me with one of your latest photos. It has been so nice having a chance of getting to know Joyce while she has been at Brambridge House & also being able to see your charming daughter. She really is a most attractive infant as well
[page break]
as being a model one. Nettie is just back from Scotland & having encountered snow up there, has now come back to a real summer. I was glad to see your mother looking better again last week. How I wish this cursed war was over & that everyone, but most of all you people, could settle down to our old normal existences.
The best of luck to you & again many congratulations
With love
from Dorothy
