Cark,
Friday.
Dearest,
I don’t know if you saw today’s paper, but I have passed the Contract & Tort. I got a third, which isn’t very good, but just good enough. I have just written to my former tutors, thanking them for their assistance.
I got an unexpected letter from home today, It enclosed this photo of Bob, which I think is a very good likeness, & also an airgraph from my aunt in Tasmania. Apparently she has sent me a Christmas parcel, but it hasn’t arrived yet, so I’ve written to find out what has happened to it.
That’s all for now.
All my love, darling,
Harold.
[page break]
P.S. have just heard from a pupil that Shaw (at Little Rissington) has been posted to a Wimpey O.T.U. for heavies. I bet that’ll shake him!
P.P.S. I have been looking at my Savings Certificates, and find that I have exactly 50. On second thoughts I’ll send you my book, & then you can get your mother to put in it as many as you like, after you’ve filled your book.
