Can anyone read shorthand?

I have just got a postcard of Baldock church, posted in Cornwall to someone in Dorset and before I properly document it I would like to know what the message says. I assume this is standard shorthand.

I have posted the complete card, which shows a picture of Baldock Parish Church, on the Hidden Messages page.

  1. The transcription of the message is:
    Dear Mr Uphill
    Thank you for your lovely postcard of Dorchester. You said I think that you liked pictures of churches. Have you ever seen a photo of this church before? I myself think that houses would be such a delightful collection of postcards. You said that you like foreign correspondents best, I think everywhere today, I have a correspondent in China, Malta, Gibraltar and in America, and find it very interesting indeed. Yours sincerely
