1st May 1918
My dearest Father
Just a few lines to tell you that I am going out to dinner tonight with Colonel Richard Grant-Thorold. He came up yesterday afternoon and as I was busy I couldn’t talk to him for long but he asked me to go down and dine with him at the Poste tonight which will be quite jolly.
I got an acknowledgement of your money from the bank, thanks awfully for it. I expect Mother has returned by now. Will you ask her to send my BSA (bit of my bike) to the following address:
Lt Vanderwegen, Farm Cottage, …. Surrey. He will be there till May 11th.
I expect Badley will have got it back by the time this reaches you.
No more now it is duty time and post time too.
Best love to you all
Your loving Dorothy.
