M. Christmas

Dear beloveds.

            Your box is just going and this is just a time to say very Happy Christmas to you all. We have been very


busy working on this Empire broadcast for Christmas morning which Mrs. H. & I wrote but to-day we feel a good deal like the playwright on the night of a first production. For our original has been trimmed & cut so often to suit so many people & times that we hardly know it. We are quite thrilled to be on the first historic programme however


though it doesn’t mean any money this time.

            I hope your little gifts will have some attractions. They go with much love.

            We are both quite well & happy though Dolly had her bumper smashed this morning. Shall be at Perth on Sunday.


I am leaving the next Friday for London. Will let you know what train but don’t save the turkey.

            A kiss for each of you.
