Hello Joan Darling, I have recently been reading one or two books on farming, & country life generally. I don’t seem to be able to make up my mind as to what sort of a job I should like to do after the war. But I should definitely prefer to live in the country. We may be lucky in getting hold of a cottage of some sort. All my love Darling,
Bob xxxxxxxx
