23 March 1916 – Richard to Gertrude

23 Mar

March 23

Karachi.

 

Dear Mother.

No mail this week, but I daresay a letter will come Saturday. We are getting settled down here more or less, but it’s warming up. I had a long letter from Jane, she seems to be enjoying her new job & is happy. I have sent that gold watch home by a man who is sailing shortly, can’t think why I ever brought it out. Hope it arrives safe.

No more now.

Yr loving son

Richard.

Tell Ben I have a dog-boy, & I have called him Dudley! He quite likes it


A dog-boy was a servant engaged to look after a dog, in this case June.

    The explanations for some of the unfamiliar terms such as ‘dog-boy’ are so insightful. Many thanks
