Darling Helen.

I sent you today by Express the jasmine you wanted. I forgot this was saturday & that you might not get it out of the Office until Monday. But being packed in tin I think they will be fresh if not I'll send more though the flowers are past prime & falling fast. making a sort of snowbank along the walk. By the way the correct spelling of the name is as above, not "jas/si/mine" - leave two of the letters out as indicated. It belongs to the same natural order as the Olive
Am so glad all pain's gone We'll be happy yet

Ever thine
