Mab’s back and off on her holidays.

Horekelly, Madampe, (N.W.S.), Ceylon

22.X.00.

I used my muslin frock when I went to call on Mrs de Livera. I have been getting out my flannelette blouses as I will want them for Newera Eliya, also my coat skirt. I am mad and I am constantly taking it out and shaking it but moths are awful here, those extremely tiny ones.

I posted a letter to you on Friday to catch an intermediate French mail, but I think it should have captured the appropriate one as it went out two days late. I havent got much to tell you this week, things have been going on extremely quietly, and we have had no more fights. George has to go to the court again on Friday to hear the choice, as I believe I have currently informed you, and then we will get away as soon as we perhaps can. Mr Norman wants George to remain in Colombo a day or 2 simply as there are one or 2 things he wants to see him about, otherwise we had planned to go up to Colombo in the boat, and then on by the night mail. We want to take our bikes if we can, get them to Colombo in time, but they have to go as far as there by boat and of course I anticipate there will not be one going when we want it.

Fancy you having a dance so early. I do hope it went off all right and that you all had a good time, especially Dor. How I want I had existed to see her, actually matured. I anticipate she looked very nice.

I published a letter to you on Friday to catch an intermediate French mail, however I believe it needs to have caught the correct one as it went out two days late. If so, you will have got 2 letters together. I have not got much to tell you today, things have been going on very silently, and we have actually run out battles. George has written to try to get Elephant Nork for the very first fortnight in November. We are anticipating disappearing and it will be so jolly to have the very same dear little house once again. George has to go to the court again on Friday to hear the decision, as I believe I have actually currently told you, and after that we will get away as quickly as we potentially can. Mr Norman desires George to remain in Colombo a day or 2 simply as there are one or 2 things he desires to see him about, otherwise we had actually planned to go up to Colombo in the boat, and after that on by the night mail. We want to take our bikes if we can, get them to Colombo in time, however they have to go as far as there by boat and obviously I anticipate there will not be one going when we want it. The water is extremely high recently. Sometimes when it gets to a specific height, the boats cant get under a few of the bridges. If that occurs, we shall be done.
