Chris,To recap, Lady Darley is 15. She hasn't disclosed the age of her would-be boyfriend. And why should she? It doesn't matter to her. What's that saying about love and war?
A couple of days ago I was wondering why you hadn't written to me, and I came up with the conclusion that you have moved house. So if this letter ever gets to you it will be a miracle. But never mind, I'll write a couple of things down.
You know I told you about [Lem], well he was here last week. That was the 19th and 20th of August. It wasn't romantic, we were just like best mates but I'm afraid to say I still really like him a heck of a lot. I still think he feels I'm too young for him, but I feel that age isn't a problem. It's only the way people feel about it. If you treat it as a major problem, then it will be. I would be prepared to work around it.
Did you get my postcard from Austria via [your friend]? Sorry I couldn't send it to you, but I hadn't got your address with me.
Sorry it's so short.
