My Beloved Angee,
I was hoping to have had a quiet day here tomorrow (Lord's day) intending to start for Karachi on Monday, but on calling at the office find her sailing on that day is doubtful, so I go by the mail tomorrow or I should lose a week. I leave this note for next week's mail in case of my being too late for it on arrival at Karachi.
With much love to you all believe me my beloved Angee.
Being very affectionate Husband
