Dear David.
Many happy returns of your birthday I am sending off your present to-day as I do not know that you will get it by Monday if I do not post it now.
I feel sorry that it is not a surprise however it is a case of have it your own way and I am only too pleased to be able to give it you and very proud of the row of gongs.
I got back without event. Daddy rang up on[deleted] th Tuesday [/deleted] just to let us know he was still here. He did not ring last night.
Last night your mother rang up, it was to tell me your Uncle Cecil
[page break]
had sent over another parcel with an overcoat for me. She did not say much else. Elizabeth says William is v. well. & growing out of his clothes.
We found the toothpastes in a brass jug in the far corner of the sitting room. Also inside were, one ash [inserted] tray, [/inserted] one thimble, one reel cotton, one stick of sealing wax and several of Musies [?] bobbles. She is now playing on the concrete outside the barn while Granny gardens.
The aunts are coming Monday instead of to-day they put themselves off as John Frances is visiting them to-day, this [deleted] There [/deleted] suits us just as well too. We ate the mallard and they were very nice indeed.
With all my love darling and I do hope you will be at home and out of the Air Force by next birthday
