Thursday.
Dearest,
I shall have to make this a quick letter, as my fire has gone out, & it’s rather cold here. The only purpose of it is to apologise for writing all the stuff I did in the first part of last night’s letter. I am a clot, darling, & I’m sorry for it. I hope you’ll forgive me.
Mother sent me a letter today to say that she has got my Australian parcel & is sending it on.
I don’t think I shall send you any laundry, as I’ll get my batman to send Tuesday’s laundry on to me, so that I shall be all right.
The C.F.I. told me today to take over A flight as from tomorrow in Boddy’s place. He

I shall go to Dalachy either by train on Sunday night, or, if the weather looks good, by air on Monday morning. I’ll let you have my address as soon as possible.
All my love, darling. I wish I was going to Aber instead of Dalachy.
Harold.
