May 23rd 1915
My dear Gertrude
I saw amongst the list of wounded the other day the name of Capt E.R.P. Berryman of the Garhwal Rifles. I fear this must be your son Ted.
I hope you can find time to send me a few lines to tell me about it & how he is – is he able to come home? Also please tell me about the others. Paul & Christopher & the girls. Has Richard come home from India? I fear I have been a very bad correspondent but believe me I do not forget you all.
I hope this terrible war will not last much longer but I fear there is little sign of daylight as yet.
Hoping to hear good accounts from you
Yr affecte Cousin
