Enclosure – Letter from Sam Graves

My dearest Father,
How are you? I am so glad that you are safe from the Spanish Civil [sic: Cival] War. The newspapers simply buzz about it.
I was ×××× [crossed out] very interested when I was told that you were brought here by a destroyer.
We are liable [sic: lailible] to see you in London or at Harlech.
I am just as keen to see you as you to see us! There is a wheat shortage here and the prices for bread are rising higher, about 2d1 more.
We have changed quite a lot that I am afraid you will not recognise us very easily!
When we meet you (as I am definitely [sic: definite] sure we shall) please tell me about your voyage, never[SG] not[SG] to say anything about Gulliver's . . .
