March 23rd 1983
My dear son,
Herewith your copies the letter from Bournemouth & the card that came with the cheque — which I have put safely away till I know what you with me to do. The copy of the Spectator also I'll keep for you, Dad has visions of you transported to Siberia!! God forbid. Its poured with rain all day, 'orrible. Had a quiet b'day. Judy & Marcus came for an hour after school. By the way dear, did you say I could dispose of those "Economists", there's a whole pile of them.
Ray's just been to see the bathroom & is going to work it out.
No real news love, just want to get your snaps off.
Love as always
X X X Mother
