Little Close, Saturday Dec 29th
Darling Johnnie, thank you for your letter received this morning with the horrid description of the chap swallowing his tongue after having his teeth out. What a warning! We have been enjoying ourselves quietly here. Yesterday Ba & Mrs Winter & Mother went into Newton Abbot to visit the tailor, while Frances & I went for a lovely walk over the other side, past Sunny Cove. There were terrific waves breaking on the rocks & we had a great game on Sunny Cove
[page break]
climbing onto those rocks in the middle of the sands & getting cut off when the waves came in. It was great fun.
There is a flutter of excitement here because John Winter & Ba seem to be getting on remarkably well together. He's taking her to a dance on New Year's Eve, so we're hoping. He's very rich, anyway, & would make a most desirable brother-in-law. I like him very much. We're all going for a walk again this afternoon, it's gloriously sunny & really warm. They say it's going to be colder, with snow in the north, so if there's going to be real frost shall hurry home to look after the pipes!
Yours always, darling Ursula
