My dear Esther --
We had a very good journey and are waiting here for a few days before we go over to Switzerland. The devastated regions have not yet been restarted as you see by the [enclosed] postal cards.
The Romagne Cemetery was closed for repairs and changes so I did not try to visit John's grave but the [enclosed] picture is typical of all of [them]. [page 2]
I hope you are not having boiling weather and that all goes well with you.
Write when you can c/o The American Express Co Paris.
Mary Smith sends her love to all of you as does your affectionate aunt
