5Dear old Brother
7I didn’t like your giving me that cheque, because I know times must
8be hard with you as with all of us in this terrible time. If it
9hadn’t been for the war Ol would already have been a barrister,
10I’m sure making already a good income with his splendid ability, &
11Ursie nearing the end of her course, & all so different. Thanks for
12all your kindness to me dear when I was such an unpleasant visitor on
15My treatment yesterday afternoon relieved the pain greatly. It is
16really wonderful, Will. I think every time I have it of what relief it
17might have given Ettie, with that deadly continual “sickness” she
18had for the last two years.
20Good bye my dear old brother.
22I hope Isabella’s lover turned up yesterday. It so nice to think
23some people are full of happiness.
