8I am feeling somewhat uneasy about our boy, as I have a feeling there
9is to be a forward movement on the British front – more or less. I
10have news of him dear I’d be so glad if you send me just a card to
11say he was all right.

13We are having terribly damp heavy weather here: I almost wish now I
14had tried to go to Bright, it could hardly be damper. I think the
15fighting has something to do with the heavy weather A friend of mine
16was on the East Coast & he writes they could feel quite well the
17vibration of the great guns in Flanders when they went off, 150 miles
18away! I am sure it must affect the atmosphere.

20I hope Muriel has good news of her brother. I wondered if the
21“Walley” who I saw was wounded in the paper last week was was the
22man the children called “Walley” at Cambridge. But it may have
23been only his nick-name.

25Good bye, dear, I hope you & Will get out of London for the week ends
26Yours ever
