Dear Joan,

This is grand news indeed that you send us. We cannot enter into [underlined] your [/underlined] feelings but we can in some measure understand how you feel. When you sent us the first news nearly 5 weeks ago [deleted] [one undecipherable word] [/deleted] we were naturally very upset but still clung to the hopes I mentioned in my letter at the time

Now the news is so good that you will be expecting it will be even better soon when you will be re-united.

All the folk here who were at the wedding

[page break]

have kept asking us for further tidings. Now we [underlined] have [/underlined] something to tell them.

Eileen & Maurice are having a few days in London this week. We sent your letter on as they were very concerned.

Perhaps some day soon you will have news of Alan Hill. We hope he is all right too.

Please give Bob our love when you are able to get in touch with him and of course the same for yourself.

Let me have his address some day.
God bless you both

[underlined] E. & E. Goldthorpe [/underlined]

Kind regards to your folks
