37 Myers Street,

24th November 1943.

My dear Murray, (P.S. Am sending you a cake this week.)

Have been thikning of you but have been very busy and not had time to write. The other girl in the office is on holidays and I am on my own. The job is still going strong — have been here nearly six weeks now but find it a bit of a strain to do everything at home as well. Margaret is at Cottesloe so haven't seen anything of her for about ten days. Hope she is enjoying the change. I had a letter from Rae yesterday — she has been transferred to the Heidelberg Hospital in Melbourne, and says she doesn't like it much but it is a good move. I'm glad she is out of New Guinea. Bob is writing better letters now he has come north. He seems much happier in his job where he is, and is feeling a bit homesick — do him good. I've saved nearly fifty bounds since he went away, and that is all apart from my allotment I've had from him. Pretty good. Mother and I were on the Melbourne Cup winner — Dark Felt. But we only had a little on. I think Rae must have gone to the Cup. She said she had been to the races. There is a friend of hers Russell Henry[?]  she seems interested in, and he took her, and then they did a dinner and a play. I hope Rae does settle down one of these days before long. The poultry proposition is improving — I have 38 chickens now and three more lots to come out. When meat is rationed in January we will have plenty. Garrick started off the swiming season well by winning the first club trophy. They open the season with a trophy day. Much love from us all dear and tons from myself. Your loving sister Jean. Mrs R.G. Agnew.
