Mabel has to have 5 or 6  teeth out.

We now have a bench at office, room for many on it.  ((Up to then, there were only chairs for the 2 stewards and us stenos; with the bench, some of the doctors could have tiffin in the office.))

Mrs. Braude has sent Mabel a litle bit of margerine and a TIN OF JAM - so terribly generous of her.  ((Irene Braude, the head of the VADs.   She looked after her toddler daughter Patricia, her mother Mrs. Deacon whose husband had died in camp April 1942, and also little Jean Addis Martin whose mother (a VAD officer) had died in 1941.  Jean's Dad Mr T. Addis Martin was in camp in a different billet.   Mabel used to take Patricia and Jean and little Bill Owen out for walks most mornings, and make clothes for them.))
