Dearest Elsie

I thought I would just send this card before I leave Canterbury. I am writing it in the Cathedral. After I rang you up dear I had quite a long talk with Mr Sheppard and afterwards had some dinner there 1s/3d and actually ate some butter beans. I think I told you all the news so I have not much to write about just now. Please tell Dad particulars. I will write to you as soon as possible. Well dearest I must finish now. With fondest love from your affectionate hubby Les

To Mrs EJ Hutchinson , 10 Marine Terrace, Margate
