It has been very mild up to the present &amp: now the days are drawing out &amp: the sun is getting a bit of warmth in it. This is rather a cold windy month but has started fairly well. We had a fall of snow last night but it has nearly all melted away now It hasent been at all bad nice &amp: warm in the sun but the wind would go through you received a withdrawal form from the Savings Bank yesterday to be filled in for £ 25 they had paid into my credit with the commonwealth Bank London Have signed it &amp: returned. But am wondering now if they have sent a second £ 25 as you said they wouldent transfer money on account of my not making arrangements before leaving. Havent been notified of a second lot to conclude they have stretched a point &amp: sent the £ 25. It has been very handy too with this spell I have had in England.
