Dear David
I am sending a few blades I have collected. Your mother wrote to me and sent the enclosed receipt from your bank. I imagine it is [inserted] for [/inserted] the allowance from your father.
The Post Office want to inspect your bonds book again (before I paid in the £50 the request came.) I am deeply suspicious but I suppose I must send them off.
As usual I miss you very much and am feeling lonely. Perhaps I could come and see you in a few weeks [sic] time. [page break]
I am posting tomorrow another shirt which I got for you as it is one that has double cuffs.
I hope Eric won’t mind me asking him if he knows where [indecipherable word] could apply for a job. She still seems so keen on the work, it seems a loss to the community she cannot get a post somewhere.
Frances tried to step outside yesterday but merely walked on air and the result is a scratched nose & bruised head.
With all my love
Joyce.
