I received your letter just before dinner today and now it is about 20 mins. to tea-time. I hope you enjoy you stay at Bournemouth as you did at Church Lane. I dare say you will get this before you go: I will expect a P.C. first post Monday morning: if not, Sunday. I hope the weather is fine for you. It is a bit of luck, that 10/-, I didn’t expect anything. What class exam is it. 1st or 6th. I know it is not the former. I am getting on very well, thank you, tonight I am playing piano at a theater and also tomorrow and Monday nights. I think it is about 2/6 per night. 1/3 per hr. If so it will come in very handy. There are plenty of black-berrys down here and will be more next month.
More Rumours! We are going to shift to the east coast on the 15 Sept; so if this really comes off I don’t suppose I will be able to get home; if not, I will do my best. I had a game of billiards last night and was beaten by 7. 102-95. Well my Dear I have no more news this time so I now conclude.
With Best Love Will xx
I have put “urgent” on envelope so as you might get it quicker.
