Mydear Miss Tomkinson,
Thank you for everything.
I did love being at Tusmore with you and Matron & the other VADs & Pantry. You do have the knack of getting hold of a nice collection of people, it makes all the difference whom you work with.
I sent off your brown suitcase from Oxford, & put “to be called for” on it. Thank you so much for lending it to me I should never have got half my things in without it.
I saw Joan Wilson at the Acland yesterday, getting on very well, but she’ll have to stay at least a week. Mrs Elliott Smith did the operation that same evening that she went in, & her hand/head (?) is still discharging but she seemed very cheerful, & was most grateful for all that had been done for her at Tusmore.
I hope the gymkhana was a success; it was kind of you bringing me to the station.
Mary went back on Monday, it was grand being home for a bit with her.
Yours affectionately Elizabeth Neville
