4 March 1917 – Paul to Gertrude

04 Mar

Rosamond sent me some lovely fresh eggs the other day – simply gorgeous they were

c/o G.P.O.

Sunday. 4th.


Dear Mother-

Thanks awfully for your letter & enquiries – I am perfectly fit and well again – but am having an Arsenic tonic to buck me up a bit. This sore throat seems to be fairly rife- I am sorry to hear Dreda had one too – & do so hope she is allright again now. I say it’s all Nance’s fault- as she’s had a cold for sometime & won’t do anything for it – but I’ve just written to her & thoroughly scolded her for not taking care of herself- So naughty of her not to take something.

Simply blowing a gale to-day & bitterly cold; so I have’nt been out on deck much.

Nance said she was going down to Delaford yesterday so as to help cheer Dreda up during her “convalescence”-

Must end now-

Heaps of love to you all

from your ever loving son


Will you send me a Box or Tin or Bottle of Horlicks – I liked it so much that night you gave me some in your room
