Dear Daddy,
Mother told me to write a few lines to you. I hope you don't think my writing is careless. It is bad because I am not at school. Last night, I was at the pictures to see Rita Hayworth in "Tonight And Every Night". I am going a walk with Ma and into Becci for a slider. Today, I was out with Ma to get my tea. I was at the Meals for my dinner and I got a small bottle of milk for a halfpenny to take with my dinner. I was at the beach with Ma one day in the week and we went into a cafe beside the beach and I got strawberries and ice cream. Well, Daddy, I have to close now. Your loving girl, Jessie XXXXXXXXXXXX
