My dear Son,

At last, we really were worried after 8 weeks, we just like to know you are O.K. & appreciate how full your life is. Thank you for cheque dear, I took it to the bank today & was very chagrined to find you hadn't signed it so I have to return it for your signature. It helps pay gas & electricity. Phone charges & rent go up in April, so it goes on. There's talk of putting Road Tax up to £50.

John dear, Judy tells me she has asked you to lend her money to go to Los-Angeles in the summer. Its up to you of course John, but I don't agree to this mad idea, there's some fellow wants her to go & she wants Allan to have Tess for a week or two. She's got so many expenses & if she does get a house she'll have to have some neccesities  It really worries me. She doesn't get her priorities right  I've got Tess 2 weeks as she's gone off to Austria with some Jewish fellah. I don't care for her, but I do for Tessa. Don't mention about her asking you for money, Dad would be furious, he's mad at her now & is barely civil to her.

I've bought Tess some clothes today, she grows so  She's no trouble at all, just exhausting!! She's lying on her belly on the floor drawing pictures. Dads asleep, but will be writing to you. Take care, glad you are getting exercise, its not good to have your nose to the grindstone too much. When do you go to Atlanta & for how long. All for now dear, again many thanks, hope to hear from you soon.

                Love as always,

                         Mother, Dad & Tess.

        Enid's letter,
            I think she's got a nerve.
