We can get cream and lovely farm butter

Dear Harvie,

the above is now my address and cigarettes can now be sent to me free of Inland Revenue. I would be very pleased if you could send me some fortnightly. Where I am  all is peaceful at present. We are in high spirits and hoping for the best. I came across a shop today which sells hand made Normandy lace. A handkerchief with a faint border of lace costs about 14 shillings, and one with a more generous border costs £3. The price is prohibitive. There was a black lace Fan of the most delicate workmanship with tortoiseshell “spokes”. A cravat to pin to ones chest costs £6 or more. Ridiculous. Everything is expensive except ironmongery and cheese. We can get cream and lovely farm butter

Cheerio – Gilbert
