July 6th [1963]  

My dear Hattie
  Thanks for your letter June 11th, I wrote to Clarita & Nena this month so you know I am still alive & trying to keep my head above water  What a life it is always trying to cut down; as a family we find it very hard.  Corina said she was tired in seeing me in my shabby winter coat & insisted bringing me out one, I told her not xxx to beging it wont fit as the serving girls don’t seem to know how to fit one   I am enclosing a letter from Corina incase you haven’t had one.  Thank goodness she will be back – about the 14th  I was very glad to see Jay & May also John witch I hadn’t seen for a very long time a very good looking chap  very like Cito  Do you remember how we sat on a fence waiting for him to come in from camp.  Of course you were always first!  A Christine Keeler.  Why didn’t we meet Profumo’s in our days?  Malcolm & Gerty came in to get the boys  I went to Audreys for dinner to meet them  George has come out from the States for his holidays.  Al must be very upset at Bezilito dieng  I wonder what she will do  It is sad.  Just as they had built the lovely home.
I had a letter from Clarita & she said she has taken a house near Marion’s.  I must say I would rather have something nearer the Cumbre.  That old car wont last much longer  I hope she got good prices for her things.  I am still trying to sell crystal.  Ordinary glass is very expensive & I am not asking very much.  I must close as it is lunch time  always ready for it as I go with out dinner & most times without tea
Give Al my love (do you trust Pedicurists.)
Have you seen Nora & Buzzey.
   Much love Katie

My dear Marion,
   I ment to write on your arrival but as I had xxx written to all the others I thought I would write after seeing Corina.
They arrived yesterday afternoon both looking very well. & seemed to have enjoyed every minute & full of Stuart’s baby.  Saw Bernice & said she was looking very well.  Eileen is not coming out this year.  I have just heard that Inez King had to fly to England as Enid is in trouble with her married life & is getting a divorce  Poor Inez the second one in the family  I have just received a very nice letter from Camucha telling me of her trip & a thanks from all of them for the present.  I must say the little boy in the photo puzzled me & thought they must have had another  Your grandchildren are nice looking.  The weather has been simply awful no sun rain & fog.  I haven’t been to town for ages  I’ll have to go tomorrow as the diamon came out of my ring & gave up every thought of ever finding it again.  I was setting down on the W.C. when I saw it on the floor wasn’t that luckey!!  I felt I aught to buy a lottery ticket.  as my head is just above water that makes me think of poor Christine Keeler when she fell into the water & was found bobing up & down under a peer!!  I am afraid I will never have such luck.  I have been playing a lot of bridge  I suppose you will start your lessons. again.  I wish you would tell me what Billy is going to do if it is true that the place is sold.  I hear Americans are out looking for land  I think they are going to get it in the neck over the Oil that is if Illia gets in.  I was very worried when I heard about the sinking of the boat from Montevideo as I thought May & Jay might be on it, but they came over the night before
Well its time for siesta.  Love to all
