[underlined] Dear Albert & Dolly [/underlined]

Managed to get back O.K. on Sunday. I do not think I will be on leave this week-end, so if you could possibly manage to come over here I would be pleased to see you.

Rene is coming down to-day and I shall be going to meet her in a few minutes. That will make things a lot better.

If I do happen to get leave I will send a telegram immediately.

Give me some idea of the Bus or train you will be catching by return [inserted] post [/inserted] then I can be there in case you do turn up. Only we do not get mail Saturday afternoon or Sunday, so you could work out a plan now even if you cannot carry it out.

Hope you are both keeping well & that you enjoy this nice long letter.

Cherio [sic]

[underlined] Ernie [/underlined]
