.following text written on a colourful sketch picture of a Dispatch-rider


Arnold Bennett,

August 6, 1914

An officer came

yesterday to compain of

a fox terrier (ours?)

which flew at dispatch-

riders on motor bicycles.

He said it would be shot

if found loose. These

dispatch-riders are the

most picturesque feature

of the war. They rush

through the village at

speeds which are said

to be up to 50 miles

an hour. I am willing to

concede 40.
