  my darling,

  i'm so distressed about the truss——i hope itis comfortable&does not worry you.did you strain yourself or stretch unduly, and will you nowbe able to do your exercises which are so potent a preventative of indigestion? please take great careof yourself.

  i have big news.mary is home from germany for good&has applied for a position in london ornearby. it's very good of her because she was having a thrilling time in germany. she asked tobe sent home so that she could be near us. andthey granted her request.she rang me up from tilbury,&said‘i'm home for good’。 i think shemay be demobilized in february——i feel warmed& comforted by her presence.

  i'm so happy to see from your letter that youare enjoying the beauty of the lakes& the comfort&elegance of the villa. ihave had a most amusingletter from sarah describing her apricot coloured&mirrored bathroom.

  work is progressing rather slowly, but i hope surely, on the chartwell&london fronts——whitbread is industrious&thorough& smiling.max's hens are beautiful&have laid a few(a veryfew) eggs, of exquisite flavour but of diminutive size——about the size of a pigeon's egg.so we have to give two instead of one, to those who areregistered with us.but moppett says,they will get bigger&more numerous presently.

  no german prisoners yet till after the harvest .it will be lovely when the lake camouflage is gone&also the barbed wire.
