Publication details: 
No place given (perhaps Bletchley?), 31 Aug. 1942.

One page, 12mo, good condition. My dear Teddy, | Very many thanks indeed & I wish I had had your letter a day earlier. Unfortunately we have booked rooms at Newton Ferrers on the Yealm & I had already sent a deposit. The idea sounds lob=vely if [underlined] there were retainers to the Cottage; otherwise Olive would miss her holiday. | Thanks you ever so much; I will keep your letter in case the point arises again. Apparently a very scarce autograph.
