Saturday 7th July.
Darling Johnnie,
I was so glad to get your letter of 5th July this morning.
It’s sickening the way they are chopping & changing about what to do with you. You’d think they’d find out whether Hoylake takes medical cases before telling you you’re to go there. However I suppose there’s nothing I can do about it now, except long for you to come out as quickly as possible. Do work hard at your various exercises so that they’ll give you leave soon.
I was weeding up till 11 pm last night – things aren’t as desperate as I feared, quite a lot of my young plants have survived under the jungle, & now perhaps with some light & air they may grow at last. There is
[page break]
plenty to do still of course, I’ve only just started on the beds that annoyed me most.
Must hurry off to the village now.
All my love & a big kiss from Frances.
Ursula.
