Thank you so much for this address – I will write after the symphony.1
Ralph is terrifically well. I think that those weeks in bed were a wonderful restorative. We go to Gloucester on Saturday, till 7th – Majorca on 9th address Hotel Bendinat, Palma de Mallorca,  Spain, but I’ll write from Gloucester. Genia2 writes very happily from Italy. So all is well here. I liked the Day Lewis broadcast very much too.3
Love to you both from both of us.

Ursula.
