Dearest Emily

I shall write again this afternoon in reply to your letter of the 24th, received yesterday, with its very sad message but I want to get off a note this morning (interrupted by telephone calls: I answer telephone calls after breakfast, but in the afternoon I just let it ring) to send a greeting and loving thought for you all day tomorrow. I hope this will reach you at breakfast time on the 27th, to let you know that the day it is will be in my mind all the day.
