No 3.
Sunday May 24

Johnny my darling,
Here are the first of the photos for you to look at. I have given one of No 1 to Ann, but we thought that before sending any copies to friends & relations we would wait till the 4 on the other film were developed & then we'll send them all to you to let you decide which ones you'd like sent. So please return these copes, with your comments. I'm going to have one of No. 1. [inserted] anyway. [/inserted]
The photos of Roy have come out well too, & we'll send you copies of those to look at when they come back from Roy.
Ann & I are going out for a walk this afternoon.

[page break]

This morning she practised while I did a bit in the house, and afterwards we sowed a row each of peas & French beans. This evening Mrs Sansome's sister is coming to tea, she is a nurse in University College Hospital.

I am very much enjoying having Ann here and shall certainly invite her again. Last night we helped Ba to print these photos & I think Ann was quite interested.
I've got an awful headache, so can't write much more now. I do hope all goes well with you - I will send off your Tennis shirt tomorrow.

With all my love

The tooth that F. has cut is a double one!
