My darling Rose & John

The latest pictures are really beautiful  she gets lovelier, Rosie dear, she is a great credit to you. The picture of you both in the garden is so lovely. not forgetting Boris, all have been shown round & duly admired, all say "What a beautiful baby," & "isn't your daughter-in-law pretty". I am very proud of you & love you dearly.

It is a lovely day today & when I have finished this I shall be outside. I don't have much news darlings  life goes on much the same, the days run into weeks & the weeks into months so quickly. We haven't had any real summer yet, just an odd bit now & then, then the dark clouds appear, plenty of wind & rain  Rose, I wonder about your mother & how she is  I wish I could communicate with her but when you write to her, do give her & your Dad my regards & tell her I'm thinking of her. She must be very proud of you too Rose. Auntie Mu is 76 on July 3rd so I have made her one of my special cards  John if the job[1] is open to you & to your advantage go for it. Talk it over with Rosie & if it suits you both you've nothing to lose. I say little prayers for you all the time, as you say John, its as well to keep in with him upstairs!! I pray to him every night to keep you all safe & well  My family is all I've got to live for. Jude is looking forward to seeing you all  I understand they will be going to Washington & Georgia & various other places so they'll be doing a lot of travelling. Let me know how you get on John. Once again, loads of love, cuddles and kisses to the little Princess & to you both of course. I'm glad you have good neighbors, so that Rose has someone to turn to if necessary. As always
