9 August 1916 – Paul to Gertrude

Dear Mother.  V. many thanks for your letter. So we are having simply gorgeous weather – and I simply love it and do hope it lasts for some time yet.

Jolly glad to hear Topher is fit and well – How fearfully exciting about Sheina & Jim – do let me know if and when you hear anything definite. Has Jim been made a Captain yet?

Very little news this week. I saw a lot of old Gloucesterites the other day & we all lunched with Drew – most awfully cheery it was-

We are starting in rehearsing again for our show – & now we are thoroughly settled down again we think we might start in once more.

I had a long letter from Willie Perkins the other day – he seems to be living in a fearfully hot place – but thinks he will get some leave in September-

Best love to you all-

Your ever loving son
