1 March 1916 – Paul to Gertrude

March. 1st 1916


Dear Mother.    Many thanks for your letter – they seem to take much longer these days – don’t know why though-

I wonder if you have been up to see Jane’s shop yet? she told me in a letter 2 or 3 days ago that you were going up to see it- They seem to be quite allright there.

I must say I think you are quite right in a way about moving – it does involve much more trouble than one really imagines – & might not be worth it when all is done – but at the same time if everything did work out nicely it would be much better in a way for you – and the girls.

Another thing is that at present as all the girls are working you would have no one to help you do it – although you could manage it – but it would tire you out I’m sure, with all the worries and all- attached to a decided move.

We are getting rather nice weather up here – all our snow seems to be finished, to-day seems much colder though. So Dick is off to India again – I wonder how he likes the idea. So far away he seems to go-

Awfully little news – best love to you all – your ever

loving son
