We are having the most heavenly weather   what my mother used to call “real jam”  Sunny, dry heat with a breeze & already we are all well burnt. We got here on Tuesday 3 p.m. after leaving the Vicarage  Sat. 6.45 a.m. a most interesting journey & we met such nice people on the way. If you listen you’ll hear us purring  –  we never stop all day!! Much love Marjory Williams  July 15.’

Our Norwegian friends are all 18 years older since we saw them & 6 have passed on. The boy of 10 in 1932 is now in charge of his father’s farm & his father retired works for him! (by law farmers must hand over to the eldest son I think at 50) the grandchildren of Isaac & Anton now row the boats & own the farms! Perfect weather for hay so fishing is curtailed a little  –  Hope you are all v. well. Much love  Marjory Williams   15.7.50’
