[underlined] Letter No. 29. [/underlined]
Tuesday. 2 pm
My dear Mother & Dad,
This is just a short note to say thank you for your letter of Monday just received, & to let you know that I & the boys & Rooster are all O.K.
Thank you for all you say in your letter. I am so glad you received my two Sunday letters so promptly. The mail in the North fares much better than the mail down South & Alice’s letters & mine to her take 2 & sometimes 3 days.
Hammy says he’d like to meet my ‘Mom & Pop’ before he & I
[page break]
say ‘au revoir’ he is going to spend his leave near Edinburgh & I am wondering if it could be arranged somehow for him to see you for a day. [inserted] (Maybe he could travel to M/cr with me, & Mother could meet him then) [/inserted]
Alice wonders if I shall see her for a day or two as well. If I get ten days, I may try & plan to meet her, [deleted] if [/deleted] but I think I shall wait first until I know exactly what the score is. We shall all have a lot to celebrate, but the parting after this leave will not be as difficult as in the past.
Just now I cannot write decently. A combination of ‘nearly finished,’ & 2nd fruit excitement probably.
Bye for now, all my love & best wishes Douglas.
