1Sunday afternoon
3The rain is pouring in floods, dear, & I can’t help feeling there is
4some connection between all this & the deadly mass of explosions set
5free in Flanders & France. I know how your burden of anxiety will
6increase with present conditions & hope you will soon have news of the
7boy to set your heart partly at rest.
9We have had not one fine day since I came here. I wonder if the
10weather is the same in London. It is really abnormal here for June.
12I’m always thinking of you, dear.
13Love to Fan
