My dear Mother,
Many thanks for letters from you and Cecily. I am sorry the pram has broken down again but hope that Wardill & his minions if he has any will be able to mend it, as I don’t suppose the makers will be able to do anything or that you will be able to get a new axle these times. The fine weather continues & one can hardly realise that it ever rains here. However at the back of one’s mind are faint recollections of a little mud last November & the days when we used to walk about outside the trenches in full view of the bosch, because you would drown if you got into them. I am glad to hear G. has got as far as Dakar or whatever the place is all right, as she should be out of the region of submarines anyhow.
I have just heard form Alicia Aldons that was from India. No news.
Love to all
