your news is like manna (from heaven)
here is my telegram in reply, and thank you for the stamps. my personal collection is growing.
winter here, too much rain, umbrellas everywhere. stop. is it warm there? is it sunshine there? stop. hope you are well. stop. we miss you every day, especially sophie-lee. she watches from the window every evening before bed. stop. lucy alice, heartbraked though you may have been when you left, do not lose your faith. stop.
so here's to you, lu. milk and honey.
regards and much love.
