Dear Father


Just a few lines to let you know I arrived back safely 11.15 pm.

I had nearly two hours to wait at Chelmsford, but it was still worth it to get home for a little time.  I enjoyed myself very much.

Just having a few biscuits Bourbon creams whilst writing.  They are very nice.

Well Dad I hope your cold is better & that you were in plenty of time for your train this morning from Southend.  I guess you looked after that alright.

Please excuse more news now as I have quite a big collection of letters to answer.

I hope Jess, Ethel, & Winnie are quite well.


With much love to you all

From your devoted
