Kay Darling,

How wonderful!

Please congratulate Dick for me & wish Mary a speedy recovery. I really never thought they had it in them. Just fancy a baby girl all their own!

They will have to think of another name in place of “Our Albert” maybe “Our Eunice” will do.

I do hope that by now you have received my previous letters.

[page break]

letter [missing word]

I am still as stiff as an old horse, trouble is this [indecipherable word] of P.T. Basket Ball & Swimming is rather upsetting, not being used to it.

I am writing this in the Study hut, just prior to doing my Homework. If time permits we are off to the Camp Cinema.

See you soon Sweetheart

All my love & lets hope we may have a wee bairn in the future.

Goodbye & God bless

Yours always

Jim XXX
