My dear son,

This is the last letter I shall write before I come, unless anything unforseen happens between now & then. I've got my ticket today arrives Kennedy Airport June 18th 20.35   local  time. T.W.A. Flight No 8703, leaving Heathrow here at 14.55. I don't know if that's the time it will be with you, Dad thinks it will be earlier your time. Please check darling, but if you are not there, I'll wait till you come. I only got $78[1]  for £100 so I might have to get a job.!! Am longing for the day. I thought you might have written, but won't wait any longer. Just want to wish you many happy returns of the 3rd love, it brings back many happy memories. Its lousy here, cold, grey & wet, but it's Tessa's School sports & I promised to go. See you soon.

        Loving you as always

                Mother

  Notes

  1. That can't be right. She must have meant $178.
