No 36 (might be 37 if I numbered Kenneth's)

16/9/17

My Own Darling Wife,

  I am glad you had a good 

time when Maud & John & Family

came. Fancy Kenneth crying. Sorry

that Maud does not look any better 

but hope she feels better & will soon

look A1. Ta for Annie's messages.

I hope you will have a good time

when you go to stay with them. Expect

Kenneth will enjoy seeing Joan again.

I should like Dad's hope to come

true but there does not seem to 

be a great deal of "coming to

England" at present. A good

number of officers are being given

duty in England for six months

- but this only applies to those

suffering from the strain of the

war & I can hardly claim to
