Dear Mother – Excuse pencil – but can’t get any ink at present. I arrived up here safely – yesterday morning – beastly journey – & I was very tired – & it’s fairly strenuous at present – & will be for some time.
Will you see if you can find my old-ish uniform monkey jacket. I think it must be in my room somewhere – you can tell it by the right arm’s gold lace which is fairly wobbly – & one of the rings on the sleeve is sort of unstitched & bent back a bit. It must be at home I think- if you find it please send it as soon as possible-
Hope everyone at home is flourishing – bestest love to you all – your ever loving son
