Griff writes to Ida thanking her for her letter. She wrote it just after he left her at midnight and she had every right just to go straight to sleep but is glad she didn't.
He likes to read her letters in private, "your letters being very special letters." He tried to read them on the tram, twisting his neck to read the postscript up the side (like in this letter here) but didn't do it justice in the dimly lit carriage. He's made up for it by reading it properly thrice since.
He agrees an evening in would be good and since she's not going away at Easter and he's not working at Huddersfield, maybe they could join their friends for their regular night of cards.
Regarding her work he writes, "no I don't predict you will stay at School! Only for the time being, though I know you do love the School." She ended up being its principal and seeing it through all the way to 1972 when it dissolved to make room for the RNCM.
