Am still anxiously awaiting further news re house purchase & wondering where you have been living for the past month & how you are coping with everything. Your hands must certainly be full, but I know that whatever you do, you’ll do well. I hope to hear, during the coming week of all your activities. I loathe this life more as time goes on & long for you painfully & incessantly [censored words] I’m having even greater difficulties than ever in endeavouring to learn the fiddle. My own has started to split & while efforts are being made to replace it I have to use a shocking one rejected by everyone. Latterly [one censored sentence] Fondest love & a kiss to both J.
