4 Dear Andre

6 I wonder how you are all getting on: if you are still down at the
7lower farm or back at Port Lock. Here is quite hot today. I love my
8beautiful rug you children sent me so much. It makes my little sitting
9room look quite cosy. I have it on the sofa. I wonder if you are going
10again to your Aunts next Holidays & if I shall perhaps see you as you
11pass.

13 I suppose Bobbie & Kathie will be quite grown & changed when I see
14them next.
15
16 I'm afraid I can't come to Port Lock because its so high for more than
17a few days; but I'm going to find out about the Cawoods' farm, if its
18a thatched roof, & if its not so high, & perhaps I shall go there next
19summer & then I shall be able to come & see you too for a couple of
20days. Give my love to every one unreadable dear old Can Kathie read to
21herself now?
22
23 Your very loving friend
