My dear Mother
I’ve just got a letter from XX D.H. also Ben’s. Yours had a lot of lavender in it. Cox sent me a letter for Ted too, awaiting his arrival. Pathetic eh. I’ve sent it on. If I cable my quite well stunt would you please post enclosed. I am communicating with Assam & hear there are plenty of jobs.
I got a letter from Jane written 26th August. Please thank her. I shall be sorry if I go & miss Topher. I must write to Mrs Tudor, I’ve been saving some stamps for her, but they are very common Egyptian ones.
Best love to all
yr loving son
If I cable please send this letter. If no cable don’t send it, tear it up
