As before.
June 7-43.

My Own Darling Kay,

Thanks a lot for your nice letter.

Before I go any further, there is no need to mention the Squadro [sic] No in my address.

You went to B'ham after all? What did you buy if any?

Yes, I received the telegram from Archie, I wondered how he remembered what date my birthday.

What on earth made you book into the Midland Hotel?

I certainly think the kidney shaped table sounds good.

Still keeping on top & getting quite a share of 'Oh be joyful'. Will you pop into G & Spaldings & order a few [deleted] enge [/deleted] enlargements, you remember the ones I liked. I should like to send one to your people & one to mine.

[page break]

2.

Have written to Mother & Dad & now I have to drop Bert a note of receipt.

Be good sweetheart hope to see you soon.

All my love

Yours always

Jim.

PS. Have named our Kite. 'NULLI SECONDUS' & same has been duly painted on, & instead of painting bombs on the side we are having empty tankards.

Jim
