126 Lincoln Street
Well, darling, I was about to write to you when Miss Murray, the teacher who rents the room upstairs, came downstairs to show us the trouble she’s been having fitting a skirt. Mother and I went up to give advice and stayed to talk. I’m just getting back to the letter now.
How do you like the ink? I bought some Parker’s Superchrome Ink today – it’s special for these pens. I’ve meant to buy some ever since you gave me the pen. I really think it writes smoother with this ink.
I miss you very much, darling (I guess I kind of got used to having you around!). But I feel so relieved to know you are in such good care and have such a capable doctor. I also have a feeling that it won’t be too long, after all. However long, though, you will be better when you come out and that’s all that matters. I love you – so don’t you dare flirt with any of those nurses.
Today at work, I asked Francis if she could be a bridesmaid on September 1 – if everything works out alright. I told her all about your operation, too. She says that any date in September should be fine.
Good night now, my darling.
All my love,
(For Monday – A visiting nurse from Southampton.)
