3 Dear Friends
5 I’ve only just found out you sent me the eggs. They are lovely. We
6have them for breakfast every morning. I have no servant now even for
7washing pots &c & they are a great help because one can boil them all
8at once & have them cold. It’s windy cold weather here but it’s so
9nice having my darling back again.
11 All old clothes thankfully received.
13 Yours ever & ever
