Darling - I have just got your letter & I don't know what to say. I rather feel that doctor is talking tripe. Lisa had a large head rather than a small one, but it was by no means abnormal, & she certainly had no hydrocephalism at all. Then it does not seem to be at all certain that the baby was as they said - & even if it was, it surely does not establish a tendency to that. Look at Ma & Lily's children - & Jimmy Caldwell's. My father definitely said it was a chance in thousands & would not happen again. I hope you

in January.

I will do my best to get all the things you want from the bags & trunks. As you say, it will be quite a job but I suspect I will get them all.

I love you so very deeply, darling

Harry.
