Postmark 30 August 1930. Addressed to Mr & Mrs W Jeffs, 12 Elston Road, Bedford, Beds. Message reads ’59 Bridge St, Witham, Essex. Dear Mr and Mrs Jeffs, You will be pleased to hear I am feeling a little better. This is a lovely place here, all country lanes. The air is far better than sleepy old Bedford. I’m afraid I shall not want to come back from Bedford. Best wishes from Dorothy’.
