   1842

                                   September

                          19th August 1917

Absender:

 Name:...Robert J Kelly

 Dienstgrad...2.nd Lieut

Regiment...Royal Irish

 Offizier-Gefangenenlager

       Schwarmstedt

Prov. Hannover, Deutschland

 

My Darling Mother

             I have not received a letter

from home recently; but I trust that you

are all enjoying good health.

    I received underclothing and flannels safely.

Thank you very much for sending same.

As I have mentioned before , my letters

resemble a catalogue of wants to be

satisfied so I may as well dispose of

that depressing feature at the outset.

 Firstly, I want some Kolynos. In a recent

postcard I asked you to send me a

regulation tie and for a pair of black

boots which I believe I have at home. If

not, it does not matter.
