David to May May 30th 1917
I have just got your letter (27th), a lovely long one too and written from home on Sunday. You are a darling.
I like your daydream while you were polishing the hall, but I guess I didn’t give you the day off – a partner in a business just has the day whenever she wants it.
I guess I must see that small dress you are making in case our order for boys is misunderstood and we get girls.
I do hope you persuade Mrs Muggridge to go to West Wickham (you really ought to look about for a spot, in case we manage to live there) and I hope you have a good day. Its an awful pity she doesn’t sleep well as that is probably causing half the trouble.
I missed the posy yesterday so am sending the letter today.
I must write to Mum now, so
May 31st 1917
No letter from you today so I suppose you managed to get Mrs Muggridge to go to West Wickham.
I do hope you had a splendid day and thoroughly enjoyed yourselves.
