Dear Edgar,

I have just finished looking through the last 3

letters received since you left for the second time with the

intention of replying to them but after careful examination

cannot find anything to reply too, taking singly

they are quite barren of news of any material interest &

even collectively don't say much for your powers of observation

or merits as a correspondent.

  I should have thought that Salisbury Plain would have

been a sufficient change to provide you with material

sufficiently interesting to warrant a long letter, perhaps

you are too busy?

  In regards to the 3/6 we have heard nothing further.

  In respect to Shirts I understand these are leaving

Tuesday morning

  There is nothing very to report from this end except that

at the moment I have an attack of influenza & did

not get up until 11 am & feel very far from well at the

moment.

  J. Bower has received his calling up note & takes it

very different from what appeared would be his probable

attitude some months ago. in point of fact he has funke

which of course is excusable in a man of 47 years

of age. Tom Longee is another man who is called up for

July 15 Class A & 48. You may not know him but he was

one of the men who called at Thorn mead to see if Herbert

would volunteer under the Daly Scheme, I intend to close

at one page for night but will write you more fully when I have more

of yours to reply to. Yours affectionately, Father
