March 12th 75

My dear Son,

we are terribly anxious as we've had no news from you for 8 weeks  I can't wait for each day to come hoping for a letter. I know you are busy but surely you could spare 10 minutes if its only to let us know you are alright. If you are ill surely someone could let us know. What with Judy's troubles & not knowing if you are alive & well I'm going frantic. I've tried ringing you & am told owing to damage no calls can be made yet. I shall try again at week-end.

Everything here is so depressing  Weather cold, grey & wet day after day. Prices spiralling to ridiculous heights. I wonder we don't all end up in the "looney bin"  Please, please put us out of our misery & write or ring.

This letter is short as I am going over to the Post Office now, after another wait. Apart from colds & all these worries we are O.K.

            As always

        X X X  Love  Mother


Very anxious, please write.
