My darling Mummy and Daddy.

I hope you are all well. I am quite well and happy and so is Stevie. Thank you very much for the two letters. Thank you very much for the parcel also all the things in it. Yes I can write with the huge pencils. Yes, I would like to play the Piano. I am not having the party on Saturday I am having it on Friday because Mrs Cox is going out, but I am getting the presents on Saturday. I am writing a letter on Sunday with the huge pencil. I have still got some of the old Swan-ink. I am learning 12times table now. I will try to write a long letter. Next month it is the Pujas. The boys play marbles alot [sic] now. We still play hockey. I play with my own stick but Stevie’s stick is broken. It rains nearly every day.

kisses
from David.
