“George Hotel Penrith
Having lovely weather and I am feeling ever so much better in health. Are you keeping well. I don’t want you to get done up by staying at the works all day long. However I will be home on Tuesday & be able to make things easier for you. Can you manage if I don’t return until Tuesday afternoon[?]. EYP”
