# CONFINED TO BED FOR OVER A WEEK
# CAT AND KITTENS ENTERTAIN
# RON NOW AIRCRAFTMAN FIRST CLASS

Have written to Fred and Amy. Rene has baked for the weekend. Peter Taylor has skinned the rabbit Mr. Paul shot for us, it is a young one. I must get it cooked for tomorrow’s dinner as we are giving Pauls part of it. Mrs. P has to stay in bed a month so I ought not to grumble. She has no one but Mr. P to see her until her mother can leave another sister and come to her. Think Hallgarths are related to Mrs. P so they may do a bit for her, but it is dreary being in bed alone. Jean has had a bit of toothache and is very tired to-night. Flora Hall had her tonsils out on Tuesday so expect Dr. M. She was visiting her on Thurs morning when he came so early.

Fred Smith (previously mentioned 18 May 1941), farmer, was the husband of May’s cousin Amy.

Mr Lamb had latterly been married to Joe Kirk’s sister, Alice, whose death was recorded in the diary entry of 6 Dec. 1940.
