Dear Ena,


Just a line in answer

to your loving letter. I have

received parcel, also money.

There are a lot of little girls

who live behind the firing

line, but I dont suppose

you would like it, for the

guns, a thundering away

all day and night. Also we

have to put up with the

German shell which explode

to near us to be comfortable

and I know they would

frighten you, and make you

go white. missingand I did

laugh when I read about

Elsey and the postingman

knocking her over, but she

would be repaid when she got

her letter. I am glad your

teacher takes in the soldier

boys. It is very good of her

I must say, and you will

have to remember me to
