My Darling Daddy.

Thanks for your letter. I went to the Pictures with Mrs Forbes to Destry Rides Again” by Tom Mix.” It was very good. Stevie and I went to the Pictures on Saturday with Mummy to “A Perfect Understanding.” It was not to [sic] good. We went out to Mummy yesterday. With the riding leave stopped I have nothing to do. So I read books. I read Brent of Gatehouse by Gunby Hadath. Also The Sea Hawk, Captain Blood his Odyssey and the Chronicles of Captain Blood. By Rafael Sabatini. They are all very good stories.

Young Cox wrote to me and I wrote back. It is much colder now.

each yesterday and ate them.

I hurt my heel badly when vaulting a railing and was in bed for three days. I am out of bed now though. Mrs Forbes says if I had fallen on my heel a little more heavily I [deleted] have [/deleted] would have fractured the bone. No more news today.

With lots of love & Kisses from

your loving son.
