Darling Johnnie,
It seems simply ages since you left, although, or perhaps because, nothing much has happened. I spent last evening letter-writing & got off seven – to Mother, Mrs Cousins, Mrs Kent, Lowe, Hazard, Irene Galitzenstein & Aunt Ethel. Quite a load off my mind!
Frances was very pleased with her presents, & hopes to write & thank you soon. This morning I let her have some flour & she proceeded to make “pastry” (with water only) with her new rolling-pin & pastry board. She cooked the resultant mess in the oven, as I had the fire on for the
[page break]
washing, and I’m afraid I may have to eat some for tea!
We’re going out now on SSafa business and to see about the wedding present. I’ll let you know whether or not I find anything suitable.
It was a gorgeous second honeymoon, wasn’t it, Johnny darling? I’m looking forward to a third in a few years’ time! If our love continues to grow as it has between the 1st & 2nd, the 3rd one ought to be in heaven, I should think! However, I hope we shan’t be in heaven [underlined] too [/underlined] soon!
All my love to you, very very dear husband, I’m longing to have you home again.
Yours always,
Ursula.
