Just a P.C. we chaps had taken the other day so as to let you folk at home see how we were getting along.
I was up in the city again this week and saw Tommy for a while in the Strand. I also saw the King and Queen going across to open Parliament with ever so many other well known people.
There is really no news. I expect to be leaving on Sunday so ought to be able to give you my address shortly.
