14 December 1916 – Paul to Gertrude

14th Dec


Dear Mother-

Very many thanks for your letter – so glad the papers were useful- I’ll see if I can send some more. I hope you got those photographs alright – awful thing really – but amusing to us as a memento.

The country does seem to be waking up at last. I must say it’s high time control was taken over most things- It’s a certain way to bring the British Public to reality- What about their Peace show. Definitely – NO – by telegram I should say. I can’t think what they have got up their sleeve. I’ve just had a card from Topher sent on the 6th – but crossed out everything except – I am quite well-

We have had jolly good weather during the last few days – not a bit like winter – I don’t mind the cold now half so much as I used to – I hear there is a chance of leave in February!!-

My best love to you

Your ever loving son
