5 June 1918 – Richard to Gertrude

Dear Mother

Many thanks for your letter. I was so glad to find it yesterday when I called. I knew all letters you write would go whirling off to Egypt, but I could not stop them. I have heard nothing yet, however they are keeping me back very kindly till news arrives. Wonder if Ted has arrived. I would have liked to have seen Freddie doing his stunts. So you’ve got the legacy all right & how nice its being free of duty. I am sorry I missed Paul’s letter, I hope he sends one to me here.

So the dog arrived back safe, how good of that old porter to write you a letter. I hope you put new skin on your thumb. I had a good bathe yesterday, the sea is fairly warm, but I’d like it warmer. Send me those 3 blue paper books of French Hugos there are about in the spare room or else upstairs in the room over the lumber room.

Best love to all    yr loving son

    So totally charming he even had the porter writing a letter about the dog that was delivered. But no “please” – just “Send me the …”

    Charm is such a dangerous thing.
