Darling Johnnie,
I was so glad to get your letter and hear that you got in safely, if only by the skin of your teeth. It certainly was a lucky break. It’s a pity you’re not likely to get any leave this week. As regards the weekend, it’s quite O.K. by me, in fact I should love it. Ba will be on morning duty, so doesn’t need any large meals at home, and Peter is probably going to be out to lunch on Sunday anyway, so that I shan’t be letting them down too badly here. Will you mention it to your people? Then they can

ring me if they want to do anything about it. Would it mean going over there on Friday evening? I can manage that if necessary.
Dudley popped in this morning. He is on 7-days leave & was disappointed not to meet you as he thought you were home for some time too.
I have at last finished my article for Housewife and dispatched it. I hope they send the photo back when they return the text with a polite rejection!
I haven’t had Frances weighed yet but shall probably take her this afternoon.
Lots of love to you, darling, take care of yourself.
Always yours
