My Dear Harry, This is to wish you many happy returns for your birthday & also the very best for 1943. Trust this finds you and your “family” in the best of health. For goodness sake don’t model the babe after Elizabeth. What do you think of the farming proposition (Tobacco), & can you manage some suitable books on the subject? Lectures here on European farming – not very applicable. Cheerhio! [sic] boetie. Love to Betty, Mum & Dad, Brothers & Sisters, & Yourself. from Donald
