Somewhere in France

Dear Little Ena,


I am writing straight away so that you

will be able to have your letter as soon as the

other and I am sending your teacher a letter

in answer to hers. I am still cooking for the

boys so you all have no need to worry about me.

You must thank your teacher for me for

enquiring about me. It is very good of her

I must say, to give you wool for some socks

but as you say I hope the war is over before

you finish the other one. My word it would

be grand if peace was declared, so that I could

come home to you all, but lets hope it will

soon come. You must excuse such a short note

as I have to get out of the place now, and

go to the billet, but I will write you more

next time.


Your Loving

Brother

Ernest, XXXX
