• Letters to George and Mercy McCann


Stocks Road, Aldbury, nr. Tring, Herts.

August 26th 1963
Dear George and Mercy, Just to let you know that the Combined op. for Charles and me is unfortunately off, as I have been ill (bronchitis etc.) for the last ten days and the doctor is still forbidding me even to go to London. I may still possibly come over on my own for a little in September but that is in the lap of the gods...Nothing much to report here, except that the dog has now eaten up nearly all of Mary's shoes –
