TRANSCRIPT:

July 3rd 1915. Saturday evening

Darling I got your two letters to night. I am so glad the P.M is pleased about Violet & Bongie, I do hope they’ll be most fearfully happy. They both richly deserve it. Poor V. tho’ she’s had very glorious moments has had some very bad ones too. I’ve written to them both, tho’ I hadnt heard from either. Margot must be happy poor darling I do hope it will last.

I notice that for once in a way your plans seem to coincide entirely with mine, except as to actual day of return. I suppose I must modify my plans in order to leave on Saturday, I’ll let you know definitely about that in a day or two, but I’m sure it will be all right. I heard from Sylvia to night too, I think she will have Anthony all next week which is glorious for her. I feel suddenly terribly anxious about the possible danger to him if he leaves the Cav. Corps and gets a regiment in the fighting line. But I suppose that is rather in the nature of looking for trouble as he’s not yet got a regiment at all, much less one at the front. I may see him on his way to England.

I am glad Mr Birrell thinks it a good plan. He’s such an angel he was certain to think so.

I met Lord Wemyss in Boulogne yesterday; {1} I’m going to have the fun of lunching with him tomorrow possibly.

Its too hot for words here to-day, luckily there is nothing to do so it doesnt much matter.

Is Edward getting on all right, I hear no news of him so I hope he is.

Love
Venetia
