Darling one,
Frances is cutting her 4th tooth & is rather fretful so I must hurry up & take her out for a little walk.
Thanks for your letters of 18 & 20th your telegram giving Mrs Donaldson’s address (I had seen it in the Times cutting as a matter of fact) and above all for your phone call. I had given up hope last night, had gone to bed & was just saying my prayers, praying you were safe & well, when the phone went. It was marvellous! So I’m coming on Jan 1st!
[page break]
I will let you know about the trains, no time to phone now.
I hope you won’t do anything risky at Christmas. You could go up to Bicester to be with your captivating Vera instead! It would be too awful if there were any hitch with the living out pass.
So a lovely Christmas to you my dearest, & I ‘ll wish you a happy New Year in person.
All my love
Ursula
