May 29 –
Dearest Johnny,
It was sweet of you to ring up last night – just a week almost to the hour since you left. And it seems ten times as long.
We are in the throes of final packing & sandwich making. It seems more like preparations for an expeditionary force than for a weekend in the country!
Thanks for your letter of 27th and for arranging for an extra allotment for me. I ought to be able to save more than my present 6/6 on that amount specially when we have our own vegetables to eat.
I should love to know just what you said in your
[page break]
letter to your father!
Bish rang up last night and seems pleased with his photo. So he hasn’t taken umbrage, but on the contrary in sending both of us a couple of treats. I hope you get on satisfactorily with your padre & his Monday evening classes.
Must go & get our lunch now. I do hope the establishment isn’t burgled while we’re away.
I have a feeling that you were on ops last night, and hope & pray that all went well.
Yours for always
[underlined] Ursula [/underlined]
Will you reply to Sid
Evans or shall I?
