3 Dear Laddie,
5 Young Alfred Luscombe, who is engaged to my great friend Andre Murray,
6Haldane Murray’s daughter, has just been to see me: he arrived from
7South Africa yesterday. He suffers from internal trouble & has had
8three operations so he can’t go to the Trenches, but wants to find
9war work. He can drive motors
11 He is going to your office tomorrow (Tuesday) He didn’t ask me to
12write to you. He said you were so busy, he only expected to see your
13secretary, but I write this on my own account to ask you to give him
14any advice you can. He seems a nice loveable fellow, & very anxious to
15do something to help.
17 If you had a moment to spare, & could see him when he calls, I’d be
18so glad
20 Your small sister
