Well I have settled at school, and find it darn hard to concentrate. It is now that I find how bad a reader I am -
I am here with a swell gang of fellows. They make it grand for me as I am the only Can. -
We are like in F. Rock here, yesterday I had a lovely walk along the beach.
Well darling, keep well and don’t worry about me.
Do miss you a lot.
Lots of love
What beautiful things I could get for you and June in London if only I could send them..however, we’ll see.
