My dear Phyl.
Many thanks for your letter today it was damned good of you to write. I’m awfully sorry to hear you’ve been ill I do hope it was’nt [sic] anything serious. It was bad luck. Anyway I’m glad to hear you’re fit again now. Do hope you managed all right on your own – it was too bad – wish I could have lent a hand.
By the way heaps of happy returns for the 12th. I enclose a few shekels for you to get yourself
[page break]
something with – can’t possibly shop here because all the shops are shut when we finish work and in any case I hav’nt [sic] the foggiest what you would like so feel sure the shekels will perhaps come in handy.
I get a spot of leave after we finish here either week end after next or the one after that. I’ll let you know as soon as I do. I wondered if you could wangle the Saturday morning off and come down to Con’s that week-end? Do hope you can – I’ll do fares etc. and let you know details later. In the meantime could you find out trains to Haverhill on a Saturday for me? Any time after 11 am.
Had a long letter from Con. Do hope she’s all right. As you say she’s doing all the work, it is a shame.
All the best, heaps of love. Dec.
[inserted] P.S. When you see Nora do thank her for me for the great kindness to Con and us all. I’ll try and write
