Dear Jessie,

I had hoped to be able to let you know how I stand in my exam but the results have not come through yet so I will post this tomorrow night and slip the result in if its [sic] ready.

Rather nice for you having company this weekend and I suppose that was why I had no letter the early part of the week. I was disappointed but you have been good so I must not be selfish. Glad you like the photoes [sic] and I will try to send you the negatives and then you can have what you want done. You were right about [smudged] Donald [/smudged] he was one of the hosts to tea at Bexhill.

Have a good talk with

[page break]

Milly about cash because its [sic] no use wearing out the home for nothing as when the war in over we shall not perhaps be able to refit the home.

On Thursday I will send you the Abbey Road 7/3 and the extra 4/- for the fortnight. Thank Gwennie for writing for Pamela and tell her I loved her little letter.

I wonder how Frank will like the Army life? Any service life away from your wife is pretty grim but he will get used to it. How’s your Mum & Vera these days keeping well I hope. I must save a bit of room for my results so goodnight my love and roll round Easter. Love to all.

Harry xxxx

P.S. Thursday evening.
Passed O.K.
