Dear Jessie,
I am writing this from your new digs at the address in my last letter which contained your travel warrant. They are not so good as Emorf but have the advantage of being on the bus route to Upwood. If you cant [sic] manage here you will be able to fix up somewhere else once you are in Peterboro’. You can start as soon as you like and I hope to see you on Thursday evening. If you send a wire on Mrs Garton will meet you at the station but in any case you wont [sic] find it hard to find the place as plenty of buses pass the door.

I have sent your case on and hope it will reach you in time [deleted] but if not [/deleted] You

can go to the station for it and get it a bit earlier. Should it not arrive you will have to arrange for Ethel to send it on with your things.

I think that is all except I am longing to see you and Pamela again and hope it will be Thursday evening.
Your loving husband
Harry xxxxx
