Darlings,

A quick note as I want Mrs Ives to post this this afternoon.

It isn't much but perhaps will buy Princess a dress or something. It breaks my heart I can't knot & sew for her. If there's anything left Rose, buy yourself something. I don't know the price of baby clothes there  I wish it was much much more, but I'm expecting Peggy to raise the fee any minute. I'm in the dog house at present & I'm very unhappy.

Love you all dearly,

Hugs & kisses

It's a lovely day, quite summery.

Remember this card[1] John, it still makes me chuckle.    X X X

X X X  Princess.

  Notes

  1. I spent the month of February 1963 — closing out one of the coldest winters on record — at the Outward Bound Sea School in Aberdovey, North Wales. We rode, hiked, climbed, sailed. I have never been as fit since.
