Dear Jessie,

Extra day on leave. Starts from Wednesday evening and a special train will take us to London. As I do not know what time it will arrive I cant [sic] let you know when I shall be home but will try and let you know. In any case sometime Thursday morning. Im [sic] as excited as a boy with a new toy. I may be tired when I get home but darling it will give me new life to see you again.

Love to you all

Until Thursday

Harry.
