5My dear old Brother
7Many happy returns of tomorrow: I’m glad you’ll have Ursie with
8you. The boy in Mesapotamia or God-knows-where, will send his thoughts
9to you. I wish nothing better for you than that you may have him near
10you this time next year.
12I’m sending you, to the flat, as a little birthday remembrance
13Zangwills last book which Dot told my you ^she^ didn’t think you had
14got. He’s always brilliant though I don’t generally agree with him.
16I’m so glad you’ve got this tiny bit of a rest, dear, & hope the
17rain allows of your getting enough golf.
19Love to the other two, & the O.M.
