My dear Phyl.

I’m afraid this will have to be a bit short and sweet as I’m in the throes of packing – a job I never was much good at. Anyway here’s a ration coupon in case your stocks are getting low. I did so enjoy dropping in again it was grand. I did enjoy some home cooked grub again and damn well cooked too. I feel awful guilty about eating your rations because I know that Con does’nt [sic] get much for one person and there were four of us. Do hope it did’nt [sic] make you very short. I’m so glad Pip is so much

better and I do hope she picks up steadily and gets quite strong again I’m sure she will.

I’ll drop you a line after I get into my new station and tell you all the “gen”. By the way I caught my train quite comfortably I was there at 7.45 and had time for a pint & a pie.

All the best – lots of love.

Dec.
