My dear Douglas.
I cannot let my birthday pass without a little letter to you. I know you will have been thinking about me so much. We always loved & enjoyed these anniversaries together didn’t we? It was a real pleasure to me to have a letter, with birthday greetings, from E.W.F. Fancy him remembering the date! You will readily understand that he has been unusually busy lately & has not been up to see us for some weeks. My birthday mail also included a letter from Auntie Gladys & a photo of Kenneth. He is becoming a fine young man. He is very tall, & broadening considerably. My young guest thinks his photo is like Tyrone Power. Auntie Dorothy’s letter contained 30/- for Douglas. 5/- from her, & 25/- from Grandad to do what I think best with it. So it will go away with Jaffes, Auntie Una’s, & Auntie Lizzie’s. Suppose that is quite in order. Yesterday Peggy & I went to have a cup of tea with Miss Balderstone. We both enjoyed it so much. Have I told you in a previous letter that

Ferhers are wanting to come back to No 12. He has entered a reserved occupation by taking a 3 months training course in engineering & is now at [indecipherable word]. You will remember their garage. Wonderful how these people wangle it isn’t it? Well, love, each letter I write is left unsealed until morning, always hoping that the postman will bring the most precious of all letters & I just keep on hoping.
We’ve had a little birthday party today. Mr & Mrs Ellwood came as usual & brought Rip. He is a grand little wire-haired terrier, very well behaved, & Peggy loves to have him. You would like him too, I know. Now it must be Goodnight once again. With all our love, Mother & Dad.
