Artefact

Griff sings the praises of a chap called Span who is "head and shoulders (not merely in size) above his companions."
He assures Ida that "of course I am going to confide in you absolutely whether the business thingummy comes to anything or not." This could be his plans to start his own travel agency.
"Life is a rather queer go, when one tries to weigh it up," he writes and dismisses the thoughts of psychologists and ancient cynics, in issues of marital upset. But he pleads with her not to "fall in love with a married man, not even a policeman, single or married." He encourages her to rest and he "shall stay at home, twiddling the wireless." He hopes to see her soon.
