My dear David,
Heartiest congratulations on becoming a “Damned Smart Officer” (the interpretation of D.S.O. by T. Atkins in former days). I must apologise for delay in writing, as I saw the announcement in the Gazette on Saturday.
I trust that your wife and daughter are well. Your parents seemed to be very pleased with them when they were staying at Brambridge.
There is not much news. I am busy trying to make bricks without straw.

Yours ever,
[underlined] Eric. [/underlined
