Dear Mrs Redgrave,
Many thanks for your interesting letter received a few day’s [sic] ago. We were glad to hear that you were near your husband You will feel very alarmed about having to vacate your own home. Things at this end, so far are reported, all quiet. The planes (Nazi) have been over Glasgow but we have not seen any or heard any. There is still as much night flying as ever, up till 2 AM. What a noise they make. The “drone” is still the same, one lot coming one lot going. We were glad to hear you had such a nice holiday in Scotland. When
[page break]
this war is over I hope it will be soon, then we would be very pleased to have your husband, self & little daughter. You would then see more sights you have never seen before. Irene has been up & down this last six weeks, Asthma. The weather has been all against her. I have quite a lot [sic] correspondence to get through, so would you please excuse, bad writing etc.
With kindest regards & best wishes to you both from Mrs Watt & myself.
Yours sincerely
[underlined] A.D. Watt. [/underlined]
