Dearest Maidie:

We are moving to-day, tomorrow and the next day and there is no mail being sent so I shall just carry this along with me. We walked bussed and walked to-day but tomorrow its going to be all walk. We got in here late and our place is miles away from the kitchens so Madame is making us some coffee and bread and butter and afterwards we shall sleep on her kitchen floor  You will not think, Dear if I do not write much that I do not love you for I do love you just as much as I can and you know that is beaucoup. I am tired Dear and want to be taken in your arms and rest a little – with all my love  

Your own
