My dearest Mother

I did not manage to get a letter off to you this last week end, so will endeavor to write a few hurried lines now, as I know how glad & interested you are to know that I spent the week end with Florence up in London. it was simply ripping to seeing her again & it was so nice that we were able to arrange & have such a nice meeting. We were both wishing so much though that old Peachie could only have turned up on the scene & then what a time we would have had! You will all be much relieved to know that Sholto has at last been heard of again! I must say I was beginning to wonder what had become of him, since he had cabled Uncle Tom that he was sailing for Eng. 16th April nothing further had been heard of him since. I wrote to Aunt Betty a fortnight ago to find out if they had heard anything further of him & I have only just got her reply this afternoon. The T.P.s were getting anxious too & Uncle Tom had taken the matter up with the W.O. but in the meantime they heard, through a round about way (through Miss Davis in Edin) that Sholto had been visiting her people in Natal early in June
