95 Sloane Street Sat. Dearest Mother. Thank you for your telegram. I've been to the Red X and got every possible facility for my journey. Also I've seen Flora just back from Boulogne and heard what she has to tell. It sounds very interesting but disgustingly uncomfortable. Diana is out there and Flora is coming back in a week. Address to 36bis Rue Victor Hugo, Boulogne and send me all my letters there please. That's our office for the missing, which is my job. Marie has not sent my watch. It is a gunmetal one in a green leather wrist band. I should like it posted to Boulogne. Tell her is is not here with my curses. I haven't asked permission of Sir William because I gather he has resigned - horrah! I'm dining with Elsa. I leave at 2 on Monday afternoon. Ever your affectionate daughter Gertrude
