Letter
Ida Carroll, Geoffrey Griffiths
1939

Apparently there is someone called Mrs Flowerdew and of course she lives in Marple. Anyway, Griff hasn't received an invitation to visit her yet, though she's "a good client and a kindly old soul, though talkative."
He laments the uncomfortable cinema seats and would like to take her to another cinema to see Jaurez.
There are no plans being made between friends for new business ventures and doesn't look like there will be "even if the war were to end soon." Sorry to tell you Griff, but...
He hates commuting outside of Manchester as the "conditions are pretty foul" but knows that she will provide "infinite comfort" if he has to. "You take me to another world, quite real yet 'different'." He knows he's missing out on news of his friends but would rather spend the time with her.
