Dear Mother

Just in answer to your letter and also watch. Well Mar Bournemouth and around here is a terrible place for high prices and when you get the food it’s not very tempting. Eggs d. Two chops small 1/10d. Annie is sick of shopping here no wonder. There are no amusements like at Southend makes it very dull. Cheerios Annie & Frank
