                                       May 3rd 1918

Mr Dear Son

     I was very pleased to t  recieve your long + well written letter

on Tuesday + think you excelled yourself it was both clear

+ concise + expressed farly well what I think you wished

to convey at the same time I think you where somewhat

dispondent at the time you wrote it + apparantly disapponted 

at Being posted to the M T This was also apparant it the

post Card you sent previous to the letter + which reached

us on Sunday- I would like to impress upon you at this

moment not at any time to exep anticipate the worst

keep a Stiff Bottom Lip - Dont Grouse -Make no Confidant

+ what you think the Best go for it for all you  are worth

The Magonly of Men Meet More Trouble than ever happens

I can Quite understand that after knobing about as you

did last week that you where conscious to get settled

down as soon as possible + that you last week experiance

would be a trying one + that + Grove Park would not

have a very cheerful welcome for you but after this

new + bring experiance still it is the system + I do not

know how one can smooth out the rough plause any

better than you can do this for yourself + I do think

that after the strangeness wears off your temperment is

such that you will adapt yourself to your changed

conditions sufficently to make them sitsea fairly acceptably

I was very interested in your Test frue at Woolwich I

do not know wheather you had shown the tester the Blue

fruts of the Connectg Rod Forgeys but if you did I then

the man did Quite Right in Selecting that as a Contrast
