Received your letters they came together, well darling I did not go on the shoot, I was left behind to do guard. Of course I was pleased to be at being left behind one gets a little tired of hopping about the countryside. Darling I am pleased to hear that you are doing so well at the insurance, of course darling I never doubted for one moment that you would not do any thing but good in the insurance, but darling you must not let my Pop get you down. Although darling I know how angry it makes one, when they are told that they did not do the right thing, but still darling I know you are doing alright. In fact darling I would like you to be working for me, I am afraid I should leave every thing for you to do and would rest quite contented knowing everything was in capable hands. Well darling I must make a confession I have made a hit with a little girl of eight. She treats me awfully well by bring me tea and getting a cigarette or two from her Pop. Last night she got me a candle for the dug out and was most annoyed when I wanted to pay for it, she is quite a nice little thing but definitely not my type. Its annoying they are spoiling your Pops chances of a job, I guess he is none to pleased about it, I think I will close now darling.
