27 November 1941

Dear Averill,

Thank you very many times for the wonderful party. It was so lovely to see you again - and it was very sweet of you to give me such a gay, delightful evening.

Tomorrow I go back to my regiment - and I feel a little sad to leave Mummie & Papa; but I have no regrets - and I know now that (for once!) my first emotion about joining up was right.

I do hope I shall see you again when I come home once more on leave.

Again - thank you very much for a lovely party.

Yours affectionately,

Mary
