This Week’s War: 94

Very busy! Going to write to you last night when in came, disturbing work […], Miss Allmand and her brother, and both bored me to death, leaving at 11!! He and she as conceited as ever and more tiresome. He seems quite proud at not having been in the danger zone.


Thanks for all the news in your letter. I had heard last Saturday week that there had been 3 raids in Edinburgh in the previous 4 days. Fun about Ada! Is her sister interned?
