Lido, Tuesday Aug 5th
Thanks very much for letter of 1st August received this morning. I shouldn't bother about sending butter & eggs. I don't think its possible to pack eggs satisfactorily & maybe its illegal anyway. Pearse's wife's name is Lucy. Would you like me to send you cash as you are needing more now? I'll send some matches in the next consignment. I've posted the book we were reading together today, also the letter from Mother which I forgot to enclose before. Frances now weighs [ underlined]15lb 6 oz, [/underlined] its colossal! Yours ever Ursula
