My dear David
We were delighted to get the watch & clock especially my gold one I took it to Barkers & two other shops & they said it was quite impossible till after the War, now it has been going for nearly 4 days without loosing or gaining a second as far as I can see & I've had the wit to remember to wind it.
I did not write at once because I thought we would go to your daughters birthday party first. She is a [emboldened] duck [/emboldened] (no resemblance
[page break]
to Donald) her diving act over the sofa reminds me of you coming downstairs when young.
I do hope you will all come to lunch when you come up for your D.S.O
Yours affect
I Donaldson
