My Dearest Ursula

As I have just abt. Two minutes for this, it is going to be very hurried. I tried ‘phoning last night, & again just now but no luck.

We had hopes of leave tonight only to have them dashed & we have also been promised some hours off on Saturday afternoon.
If that, too, is a false hope I will write a long letter about my doings. I am quite fit except for a little seediness[?] as a result of inoculation & vacc.

I hope you are not too lonely. I felt almost heartbroken to see you in tears. Cheer up my dear – I love you

Fondest love
John.
