to give me any information There is now doubt about

my application going through whatever occurs at your

end.

I got the order definately for the New Pekoe Store

which has been held up so long on the 9th The amount

of Contract will be about 1900 L instead of 670 as

the first order was + I hope to have this work in hand

very Shortly.

   I have had a Hawksworth in today who

has got 14 days leave for the purpose of obtaining

employment & understands if he can get this will be

able to have his discharge. Have told Herbert to

tell him an offer similar to one sent to you as a

labourer, if he accepts this I shall be willing to

give him a start.

      I have had to write O. Greenwood pointing

out that he was not employed here in 1914 + seeing

that the wages are 72/8 per 47 hrs. we could not

offer him employment as a smith or skilled man at

that rate, he wrote back saying he was sorry there

were so many difficulties in the way + did not see

any way only waiting untill general demobilisation

I intend to write him making an offer similar to

Hawksworth which if he care to accept will

probably secure his release.

           You must be sure to write us as soon

as you here anything about your release, will

write a longer letter when I feel fit as I only

tried to write you seeing it was such a long

time since my last letter.
