Letter to John Valentine from his wife Ursula


Wishes telegram would arrive with news of his condition. Writes of mail she has received including one from Sutton's announcing that most items (seeds) had been sold out. Says she will get Christmas cards out that afternoon and writes of domestic activities.

Felmersham Monday 17th Dec
Darling Johnnie, I do wish that telegrams would come, so that I know you are over the worst. It's such a horrid day altogether. I'm feeling considerably depressed. I do hope that you are not in too bad pain, tho' I suppose its bound to be no picnic. Poor darling, I do love you so.
I'm enclosing this morning's mail, apart from calendars from Mrs Lowe & Eileen Gibbs, & cards from the Hodsons & Ann Warren-Davis. Also there was a letter from Suttons acknowledging in the most grovelling terms my most esteemed order & enclosing a note announcing brusquely that all roses & most other things are sold out! So I shall have to look thro' the catalogue again & see what's to be had. I hope to get the Christmas cards off this afternoon. The boy from Stones brought 100 logs this morning (8/-) which I had put at the back of the garage. My yesterday's painting is nearly dry. There's one bit off the bathroom window where I had to shut it last night when I had my bath, but its not bad. The kitchen is festooned with wet washing this afternoon – what a life!
Longing to hear from you dearest, Yours always, Ursula
