I have run out of stamps so send this to catch tomorrow’s mail. It is 10.30 p.m. & just time to run out to post this before I turn in. Quite well but in a fury of work getting some portraits off to London by the 2nd. Recd your last with Girlie’s. So good to hear from you again. Keep on getting stronger. Stuck my last 2 stamps on Punches, or would have had them for letter – next week you will have a letter. So warm & mild – windows open – fires out half the day – precocious leaves & buds in the tubs. There’s sure to be a slump & we’ll all catch it. Cat her old greedy self again, catching mice with great gusto & hasn’t finished yet by any means. I am alone now – no pupils. Love from Yrs F.
