Dear Miss Sladden

How very pleased I was to receive your very nice parcel. I wish to thank you very much indeed for your great kindness. I have with great pleasure sent you a rough photography of myself and a few of my comrades. We were all wounded in the same battle, hoping you will kindly accept it as a remembrance of your prisoner of war. How is the weather at home? Here it is very, very cold and tons of snow. If you have by any chance a spare snapshot, should be very pleased to have one for remembrance of my kind friends in this time of need. Have you been to Worcester much? Being a single man, I used to have some very jolly times on the Severn as I expect you know it. Although I was born in London, I like the country very much, I think it much healthier. Thanking you once more for your kindness.

Yours very sincerely
Sergeant W E Burrows
