July 28th/18
My Dear Mother,
You will be rather surprised
to hear that that long awaited
parcel for the Headingley Economic Society
arrived at last and in spite o fthe
fact that it have been on the road
since the 14th of Feby it was in excellent
condition. Some of the biscuits were
bit dry but the cake was just
the same as if it had been 5 days on
the road instead of five months. I
enjoyed it all and in fact still enjoy
a cup of coffee for breakfast each
morning.
