Dear All,
This is just to thank you for all the letters received and to wish Daddy many happy returns of the 13th. I hope it gets there in time.
It’s grand going round collecting all the letters. I’d quite forgotten [deleted] it [/deleted] my birthday itil [sic] I got a lovely card from Isobel yesterday morning. In the afternoon I got Harry & Ros’s card & present, Irene’s letter and a long letter from Miss Mary. This morning’s post brought in the parcel from home, a book – B.P’s “Adventuring to Manhood” from Miss Moakes & Miss Witham, a greetings telegramme [sic] from David & one from the Sliffes & a letter from Mary. Thanks very much everybody for everything. I’m ever so please

[page break]

with all. It’s great collecting parcels and letters!
I shall be sending some washing soon when I can manage to get a parcel off – don’t know when that will be. You seem to be pretty busy these days.
Jock has gone for X Ray today Nothing exciting happening to write about.
Must get this off to catch tonight’s post.
Love to all
