Darling Johnnie, No letter from you today but I expect that's because of there being no sunday collection. I am going to the flicks this afternoon! “Target for Tonight” is on at the Odeon & I simply must see that. Ba is at home today & will look after Frances, & I can just manage to fit it in between feeds. Frances weights 16lb 1oz this week, a gain of 6 oz which is quite enough. She has just discovered her toes & clings on to them as tho' someone is going to take them away. She hasn't put them in her mouth yet. Herewith the LBC book on agriculture. I hope it isn't too out of date now, I can't remember it very clearly. I remember reading it while I was at Thames House.
Lots of love to you darling, I hope the exams have been OK. Yours always Ursula
