Sunday 2.00 pm.

Jess dear,

Have little time for writing, but thought you would like to know that I have landed safely, but am still ‘en-route’.

Marjorie (RTG’s sister) and Fred were waiting for me at Euston last evening: train arrived about 7.00 pm. We went to a restaurant (Coventry St. Corner House) and had a reasonable meal after queuing up for a while. Fred looked better than I expected, although he is thinner and rather more pale. Marjorie was the same as usual: she never seems to alter one way or another. She had a 100 box of cigarettes for me: they were very welcome as I had very few with me.

Cannot say much about my leave under these circumstances but I know you will understand when I say thank you for all you did for me… And thank you too, darling, for what you have done for Barry… He is better than my wildest hopes… But I will say more about him later.

Au revoir, my dear…

Please try not to worry too much…

Yours always,
