A day or so ago I suddenly got three letters from you dated Sept 13th, Oct 4th & 13th together with a picture from Erl. Please thank her very much indeed. I am awfully sorry the poor kiddie was so bad with rheumatism. I hope she is quite alright again now. I am hoping against hope that I may get your Christmas pudding before I leave here, but I rather think its doubtful, although we have had no news whatever of when we are likely to leave here or what route we are likely to take. Still I suppose we shall be going sometime & I sincerely hope soon, as the last three weeks have dragged no end & you cannot settle down to do anything with any decent result.
