My Dearest Wife,
I received your letter this morning together with a post card from Charlotte, what a nuisance your box going astray, I hope it soon turned up, it was unfortunate that you should have encountered such a fog. I enclose a letter from Edith, the photo of old uncle Tom is excellent, it is cabinet size.
May has written you quite a long letter and has about exhausted the news. I shall tell Miss Poulton to put Georgie on shorter hours.
I shall start for Newport on Thursday morning returning late on Friday evening so shall only be one night away.
It has been very hot to-day and I wish some rain would come for it is much wanted.
I must write to Jack on Thursday from Pandy.
You must let us know how Cyril gets on, for I do not suppose we shall hear direct from Richmond, I think we must have a letter from home a little later on.
Did you arrange with Charlotte when you would re-cross?
With much love
your affectionate Husband
