My Darling,

So to-night you are in Scotland or are you? Barbara said Emma Perry called up and wanted your address. That Dutchman what was his name? Anyway he stopped in the office and he is going to England. The man you got such a kick out of- riding at Syosett. Col. Haidlaw called too, and Wally and Emily. Preston has been transferred to a Station Hospital and is quite elated about it. We called Da yesterday but no answer so we came home for lunch. It was raining and the sky didn’t look too good so I sat by the telephone for the rest of the day hoping you would call me and or could bring you home for [numb?] but I really went to town on the ration quota as now we cant have any butter until Monday. Nancy is sick in bed. She went to school this morning and came home at 12:30 and threw up all afternoon. Stelephond Held and he said there is a lot of international fly. She has been asleep all evening. She will be all right in a day or two. To-morrow Barbaras friend, Bobbie Watson, is coming out. She is studying nursing. We are chewing our nails waiting for word from you. Can you tell us something and have you found your luggage? Went to church with [Mommie?] and prayed and prayed.
