5Dear Will

7The long lists in the papers seem to petrify one. Do let me know if
8you have any news. The last I had was from Dot two weeks ago when she
9told me she had a post card. Even if one hears its not much good,
10because by the time one gets the letter or card its at least three
11days old, but its something.

13I hope you are keeping as fit as may be. The weather here continues
14damp, oppressive, & chill. The air seems to me full of oppressive
15gases.

17Good bye dear old man
