My dear Mother- Very many thanks for your letter – thanks very much about the ruffle- I don’t know when this acting is coming off – we keep on having to postpone it for various reasons – but we hope to do it in about 3 weeks – that’s if everything goes all right.
I had a letter from Dick too – we both wrote to each other on the same day -, now I expect we are both waiting to see who is going to answer first – so silly.
Same sort of weather as we are having – miserable is’nt it- ? but to-day for a change it is quite a calm day.
Looks as if they are sure to ask you to Billet some of those 5000 troops that are going to Guildford!
Awfully little news this week- I am awfully fit and well – Oh I had another patch of that alopacea on my head the other day – very annoying – but the hair is growing again fine now-
with much love to you all
Your ever loving son
