22nd June 1916


Dear Mother-

Very many thanks for your letter. the Chaplain came back from leave the other day & he is fearfully pleased with the book markers & is writing to you I think.

We are having simply gorgeous weather up here – lovely and hot – real midsummer & I have had lots of tennis-

Yes I see in the papers about that fire in the High Street – really – You remember Enid Nelson – she came to stay with us once for a dance – well she’s up here fairly close – she’s been married sometime now to a naval officer-

To-day I am thinking of going to see the Conway-Gordons – if I can get away in time.

Topher seems to be slightly nearer his leave – hope he is home by now-

There’s not very much news-

best love to you all

Your ever loving son
