The form sounds good.
─ But dammit -you won’t make it  public till next year will you ?
Gosh – your writing’s just like Pud’s —
Papa is going to be a bit difficult to sur-mount, and he is very opposed to the idea of it being announced till later on –
G. of course will want to have it announced as soon as he can – but I think really you would be just as happy unofficially as officially engaged wouldn’t you.
- The understanding is there between you – so it isn’t really necessary to let the outside world know till you’re actually going through with it.
Mum’s idea sounds a fine one of going back with Peter  next October — it all seems to fit in very beautifully.
By the way, if you get married you’re damn well not going to have any foals because I REFUSE to become an Aunt !
I’m coming home on Tues. Mind you meet me at the stn. – I’m too Fat to walk up.
Love to Jority  H.
