Dear Jessie,
You seemed to have excelled yourself at letter writing. I had one at tea time yesterday and two this morning. I’ve just written to the Abbey Road giving them particulars of my income and also told them that I had arranged with you to pay £2.7s per month. I hope you can manage that because that is the amount of interest and must be payed. Also I want you to draw from the bank £1.1.9 being the balance of the 7/3s for Sept. Oct. Nov. I am enclosing £2 one of which I want you to pay Ticketts. Sorry to hear you are hard up but still everyone seems to be in the same boat.
Hope you were successful in finding a young man up to a point I shouldn’t mind [deleted] but [/deleted] as you would
[page break]
would [sic] know how far to go.
When I wrote the date on this letter it made Xmas seem very near just twenty days and I shall be home for a long time. The thought of that will carry me on. Well dear I’ve got to dash off to register this so tell you more later. Give my love to Mum and Joyce Gwen and Pat and think of me always as
Your loving husband
Harry xxxxx
