Griff tells Ida he feels well, eats well and is apparently looking well. He hopes he can go on holiday with her if she stays in England. Anywhere abroad is out of the question as men under 42 will need "exit permits would not be granted." I'm assuming it's so men of fighting age are close by for conscription.
He hopes she can see him after the music school lessons are finished for the day, especially as his work at the travel office is due to get busy.
He needs to fix his smoking pipe and will make so and mend.
