Artefact

Griff writes to Ida "the hurried note this morning was quite inadequate to express my pleasure on hearing of the return of Tommy. I hoped he would be south of the Somme, but it all turned out for the best that he was sent north. I trust they will all get a good leave after that awful racket. Poor Mrs Armstrong must have been in a pretty awful state."
Hilda Collens is ill and therefore Ida has to take up more work at the Matthay School of Music, so Griff understands if he has to see less of her.
He's been playing scales on Boris the cello and practiced singing.
He wonders whether she would go and see the Wizard of Oz with him but equally would like to meet without going to the cinema.
