Hello Joan Darling, I am still quite fit Dearest, although things are getting rather more “lean”. Yesterday was a most beautiful day & it was really “wizzard” [sic] to be out in warm sunshine again. We feel very thankful that the worst Winter weather is now behind us. My regards to all Darling & to yourself, all my love, Yours
