My Dear Mabel,
I was very glad to get your nice letter and to know that you and Harry would have an open door for me and Gertrude. It was worth waiting four short (?) years of war to get such a jewel as "my partner." But fancy her fancying me!
I do so want to get home for sugaring. But we have to wait for the powers that be to send us and they seem to have taken a liking to me.
