16/7/45. In London.
We’re just having lunch at D H Evans snack counter. I’ve bought wedding present for Pete & Winifred, a very nice coloured[?] glass vase £5.5.O. Thanks for 2 letters. Will write a [one indecipherable word] one tomorrow. Love, Ursula.
Thanks for a delightful weekend at your house! I wish you’d been there, but will meet[?] at the wedding. Delighted to find U & F looking marvellously well! All my love, Barbara.
[Inserted in child’s handwriting] LOVE FRANCES [/inserted]
