Dear Albert & Affie,
Many thanks for your welcome letter.
I have not very much news to tell you. I am having a good time. We went for a nice motor ride on Thursday to Eden Hall to tea; it is a very large mansion standing in miles of grounds. I am going to the pictures this afternoon.
I am sorry Affie has not been very well, but I hope you are better now. You ought to be here & come on the top of some of the Cumberland hills, but I have had to rough it, & I don’t know what is waiting for me when I start again so I mean to enjoy myself now.
I think I shall be leaving here next Saturday but I don’t know yet. I shall spend a few days at Wood Green as I promised Pat I would go & see them, & I should like to have a look round London.
I expect Jay does not use her carriage very much now. How did she like going to town I suppose that was her first visit I hope you enjoyed yourselves.
I notice you have sent me large sheets of paper but afraid I cannot fill them up this time will try & do better next time so must finish; just going to have supper time 7-30 P.M. bed 9 P.M. up 6.30 A.M. how would that suit you?
I hope you are all in the best of health.
Remember me to Ansell & other friends. How is Prim. I suppose she is still coming to 152?
With much love & kisses for Joy
P.S. Shall be pleased to hear from you again soon even if you haven’t very much news
