Darling Ursula

Sorry I can’t let you have my permanent address. We have discovered
that our present quarters are only temporary. I am in the middle of writing a letter giving a little more detail of my activities & it should reach you shortly after this. I feel very dubious about the possibility of being able to arrange anything for Mon - Wed. We are still [underlined] completely [/underlined] in the dark about our duties & times therof. [sic] Will let you know everything as soon as I can.
Fondest love John
