Griff thanks Ida for the letter and her photo, "a very good and a delightful pose" from her holiday in Cornwall he guesses. He's popped it in his wallet window, "I am so pleased with it that the wallet generally shows slight sign of wear and tear already."
He warns her about being out and about at early hours, "dawn is as good as night time for raids in the ordinary way." He comments that "there seems to be a weird atmosphere about this war so far, and I am half afraid of a quick victory over the Poles, to our loss."
With the blackout "I cursed Hitler and his whole gang for bringing indignation upon me. I didn't bathe in the dark - just struggled like mad in the bedroom without my lamps."

With thanks to the Ida Carroll Trust
