The mails seem just as groggy here as at home. I’ve not had your last mail letters yet. The mail does’nt get in till Monday 22, & those are the letters that left England April 28th.
Nothing doing very exciting. We’ve had some of the people who were wounded & shut up in Kut. Very thin & delapidated poor things.
It gets hotter nowadays & if it were’nt for the breeze it would be as bad as Assam.
I wonder if poor Topher ever got any leave after all. I shall hope to hear how the Easter party went off in your next letter.
Best love to all. Too hot to write anymore.
Your loving son Richard.
I am playing cricket tomorrow Military v Civil, I’m playing for the military of course.
