Lido,

Darling Johnnie,
In great haste as ever. Am sending various oddments so that I needn’t remember to bring them. Fawley’s pyjamas will follow with next consignment, so console him if he needs them urgently. Shall probably send a cake, which you needn’t eat up till I come, if your not starving!
Went to see Bethhune today, baby seems to be alright, he could feel it’s head & back – isn’t it marvellous! Said Bunell seems a good doctor, he looked him up in the medical register.
Have arranged about transfer of cheap milk scheme, also notified change

of address at PO.
I am definitely coming on Friday 31st DV. Have paid up & cancelled newspapers to that date. Peter’s coming down this weekend, but staying at Hillmans. It’s his birthday (yesterday!)
Now must dash off, as usual. All my love, & don’t go & get an extra late duty on Friday 31st. simply [underlined] longing [/underlined] to see you
XXXX
Ursula.
