My dearest Mother

I arrived yesterday morning after a vile crossing (10 ½ hours) in a dirty little cockle shell: I was slightly sick.

I shall return tomorrow to the fold. I hope Molly told you that I’d wired her. I ought to have come over on Monday morning by Boulogne but was stopped at the last minute and that delayed me a day.

 

I am stopping with May and B, who send their love. I have so much to tell you that it must be a case of “all news when we meet”.

Best love to you both

Your loving Dorothy

Beyond the day job, the housework and the garden I love to delve into local and family history. I also love to get involved in local projects. Recent research for Alford Manor House has combined the two and led to obsession.
