My Dear Son

             I am in difficulty in regard to writing you as there

is not very much to say from the end of interest. With the

exception of the election which is causing very little excitement

although polling day is on the 14th the papers have very

little news of interest at the moment There has not been

any election cry from either party up to now although there

are signs that the Labour Party will bring the question

of consumption to the fore within the next few days.

Taking it all together it seems about the tamest election

that I remember the Rival politicians are scarcely

finding fault with each other + viewing the situation as

a whole I have come to the conclusion that the whole

thingis faked to get the political situation settled 

before mobilisation takes place with all its industrial

complications.

I have sent in another Return to day showing the no. of men

I shall require within the next few months, also the no.

I expect to stop. I am making application for yourself

Tom Greenwood + Fred Stoddard. Tom Greenwood is

on leave from Bedford + called in to-day. Fred Stoddard

is in Mesopotamia so there is not much chance for him.

Have you received a slip at your end asking you if you

have a situation open for you if not you should receive

this soon. Let me know when it reaches you.

There is nothing very special at the works + I do not expect

there will be for some time till things get more settled.
