Xmas Time
Darling Johnny
Your letter of Sunday & Monday arrived today – thanks very much for writing so regularly.
Another arrival was my birthday parcel from India, 12/7 duty but certainly worth it (I haven’t opened it yet). I’m so relieved that it has come.
The gardener has turned up again this afternoon & is getting on with the veg patch. I have got to go out & visit Dorothy Smith WAAF No 1.
[page break]
who is in Sick Bay with a cold & a temperature of 100°. So she won’t be coming to tea tomorrow & we shall be alone after all. Pity when there must be so many girls who would like a lovely Christmas.
Have bought the paint & enamel for doing the tall boy – the last tin of undercoat in stock so was lucky.
All my love to you dearest
Ursula.
Have got your Argotone & will bring it down with me.
