                       192 Clifton Rd

                          Aston, B'ham

                             England

                                 Aug. 1st 1917

Dear Brother/

              I was very pleased to hear from you

and that you are going on alright I am very

sorry that I have not been able to write to

you but I have been working till nine o'clock

at night and it is nearly half-past when

I get home. It does not give me much time

to do anything but I will do my best to write

to you more often I know it is hard for

you to be away from us especially where you

are but don't think that you are forgotten at

all for you are always first in my thoughts

and also in the others. We are always thinking

of you and praying that you are safe, so try

and cheer up and we must hope that it will

soon come to an end and then you will be

able to come back to us.

Everything in the garden us going on nicely , I have

had some nice carnations and roses, and father

took some to show Mr Hall and he said they

were very nice he couldn't get his to do any good

I daresay you know we are going to Stratford for

the week. I wish you were coming with us this

year for I don't think I shall enjoy myself

half so well this time.
