March 4. 1940
Now sitting in my office and can spare a few minutes between jobs. I had another serial of photos taken a few minutes ago, so you’ll get the soon. I hope your cks have come to you ok. Now on your Income tax you don’t have to report anything this year, but next year you’ll have to had $1800.00 on your income and pay tax on it.
We have now started spring weather, and now wearing our battle dress. I don’t expect to be out of here this month so no more speeches for a while. What did you think of my reception by Mr Eden. I received this morning the autograph of our first Lord of Admiralty Winston Churchill. What a famous little book that is going to be.
I have been feeling great ever since I came out of hospital, that week’s rest there was a great tonic. I wish you would do the same.
If you don’t feel good take two weeks out around Easter, and go to a hospital in NY for a complete examination get a doctor’s certificate and collect your insurance.
I have not heard from any of you in ten days. A boat ought to be in soon.
I mailed Junie lots of cards from Colwyn Bay where I was for the reception, hope she gets them. I also mailed her 12 cards from London 10 days ago.
Tell her to tell me if she gets them.
Lots of love
