3 August 1916 – Paul to Gertrude

03 Aug


c/o G.P.O.

Aug. 3rd 1916.


Dear Mother-

V. many thanks for your letter – and I was glad to hear Ben has come home – much better for her I am sure to be there than with all Wiggs’ sorrowing relations – a cleaner atmosphere is what she wants – not a depressing one.

How ripping Colin Maude having passed into Osborne – I am pleased & do give him my congratulations will you. When does he go there – next term?

Yes do let me know Fay’s address – though I doubt the possibility of going there at present. So there’s no news of Topher since the 18th – but I expect the mails are all over the place – and they say they have stopped them altogether in certain places- except official ones.

The weather has broken up here- blowing like anything with plenty of rain.

Awfully little news-

my best love to you all

Your ever loving son
