I'll come and rescue you

in my plane.

Have you a plane, Charles? Mmm.

Belisha Bat called 'Speed Cop Two'.

Are you sure an embryo parson

should have a plane?

Everyone should have a plane. [

Laughing ] Oh, really, Charles.

Post, Miss Poste.

There you are. They've all

answered. Now you'll be sorry.

Well, wait now. I'll have

to see what they have to say.

Then I'll make my

choice. Well, go on then.

"My dear Niece,

Such a sad loss.. "

But we must all keep

a stiff upper lip.

You'd be most welcome here.

The Worthing air is bracing,

and dear Rosedale is always..

"Full of the happiest

of boarders.

You'll find a true home

atmosphere and plenty of fun. "

And cousin Peggy, now

Arkela of her own troop,

would love to share

her bedroom with you.

"Your loving aunt Gwen. "


I couldn't.

[ Man ]

I was shocked by your letter..

so shocked,

my old trouble is back.

I am very willing to shelter

your wee girlhood under my roof,

eh, but I fear

you could find it dull...

with no company save

my poor chairbound self,

my man.. Hoots..

and my housekeeper,

now totally deaf.

"Still, there is marvelous bird

life to be found in the marshes...

that surround my ruin

on all sides. "

[ Hacking Cough ] [ Flora

Reading ] "I must end now,

"as my old trouble

is returning.

Your loving uncle

McKnag. " No, Flora. No.

[ Woman ] I've expected to hear from

Robert Poste's child these 20 years.

Child, my man once did

your father a great wrong.

If you'll come here,

I'll do my best to atone.

But never ask what for.

My lips are sealed.

"We're not like other folk maybe, but

there have always been Starkadders...

at Cold Comfort Farm. "

Will you stop it? "And we will do our

best to welcome Robert Poste's child. "

Child, child,
