My dear Mother,
Several days post has arrived in one & I have letters from you & Cecily to acknowledge also some papers.
I am glad to hear you talking about a holiday as I am sure you & Father both need one & now the family is away you have got a chance. Will you take the pram or isnt it worth while. I hear that if you put in 1/5th of paraffin to 4/5th petrol it makes no difference except in smell & goes further, so it
might be worth a trial. The weather is fine but the nights are getting a bit chilly. Things are fairly busy just now.
Love to all
