My Dear

I’m so sorry, but we’ve got to go away & stay with my mother tomorrow - whether we shall get as far as Bognor I don’t know.
It will be horrid not to see you again - we had a lovely time didn’t we.
Don’t get ill in the slums. I hope Herbert1 didn’t bore you too much with his troubles.
As to Saliva!2
Love from

Uncle Ralph


1. Herbert Howells.
