Sat. 8th Nov. ’69.
Dear Mum & Dad,
I hope you had a very enjoyable birthday.
This will only be a very short letter because tomorrow is a Retreat Sunday, & I have just noticed that letter writing is tonight (Sat.) & haven’t much time left.
Rob. Devlin & I have been topping some poplar trees the last two days because they’re under the power lines.
I hope Francie’s garden is coming along well. I have 5 pumpkins up!
It has been very fine all week, and the grass is beginning to look a bit dry already in patches.
Well, I had better go. Sorry the letter has to be so short.
