Dear Mother

I called at Cox yesterday but no letters had arrived. So I hope you get the letter asking you to write there. I have not been able to go down today as I am attached to a hospital for temporary duty & have been orderley officer today, & could not get out. Like a prisoner in a cage. I must try & go down tomorrow. I shall be here for a bit I expect, as they are keeping me to await the result of my application for a transfer.

Would you send me those brown shoes that are in the old boudoir, that’s where I saw them last.

Any news of Ted? Best love to all. Yr loving son
