Monday 1st Oct. Felmersham
Darling Johnnie, the only news is another disappointment – Algy is postponed again. I discovered this yesterday evening & went to bed in a huff (ie my long brown woolly stockings!) at 9 pm. I was wondering whether, in the course of conversation with your M.O., you could ask him if fertility tends to be reduced among POWs & if so, if there is any treatment, vitamin pills & so on, to help. If there were, you might as well try them.
What a shocking railway accident yesterday! I have been wondering if it affected your train back last night, I hope not, you arrive late enough as it is. I hope Leslie wasn't travelling then. I've got the washing done & intend to do some gardening this afternoon. The bonfire burnt slowly all night, but there' still plenty of rubbish
Frances encloses her school work of this morning, to prove she does sometime get her sums right. Love from us both, Ursula
