Dear Granny,

Thank you for sending the shoes last week, but it was no good after all, I had to go on guard the night of the dance & I eventually had to give the ticket away. Still it couldn’t be helped.

I’m very sorry to hear you’ve been back in bed again, what are you doing to be in bed twice in 1 year?

I shall be back for the week-end either on Friday evening or Saturday sometime. I don’t know if Sheila has rung you up yet, but she wants me to go to a dance at Skindles on Friday night. I might be able to fix it or not, I won’t know yet. Anyhow I shall come along on Saturday till Sunday evening.
