1 Monday
3 Dear Fan
5 I slipped away quietly on Sunday with out saying good bye, because I
6saw your hands were over full with all your many guests. Could you
7send me Mrs Tom Grahams address because I want to send her to send her
8Tucker’s address & tell her about using it for her son who she says
9she has asthma. You mustn’t over work yourself with that packing it
10must be very tiring work. I hope Ursie has gone to the country. I
11don’t like her cough.
13 Have you got a copy of those war pictures? I can get you copies here
14if you telephone to me. I’ve bought some.
16 Love from Olive
