Dear David
I was away in Haslemere when the [word deleted] news of your latest honour came through. The very best congratulations & I am sure you well deserve the honour. I feel proud of my godson!
I am so glad that you have the chance of a house in London, though I gather it will need a good bit doing to it.
We were at Brambridge this afternoon & a letter from Ian in which he spoke of hoping to be home [word deleted] in September. Certainly it does
[page break]
not seem as if the climate agrees with him. How tantalising to think of him & Norman in different hospitals in Calcutta & neither knowing the other is there. Your mother said she had cabled to both & one only hopes the cables arrive before either moves on.
My love & renewed congratulations
Your affectionately
Dorothy.
