My own darling Johnnie,
How marvellous that I shall be seeing you tomorrow – possibly before you get this letter – You can’t think how I’ve longed for this moment – tho’ I daresay you have too. Poor darling, diphtheria on top of everything else, what a terrible time you’ve had, its really a miracle that you have come through it. I can’t write much now, my heart is full to bursting point, & besides I’ve got everything in the world to do so as to get away early tomorrow morning. Luckily for me, Mother & Daddy have been staying here for the past week, so they are taking Frances
[page break]
down to Devon with them where she will be as happy as a sandboy till we can fetch her back. So I can stay with you till you’re fit to come out – may it be soon!
Till tomorrow, my sweetheart, isn’t it unbelievable!
Always yours only
[underlined] Ursula [/underlined]
