men & now to answer your

letter. I am glad to see that

you are all right. Am afraid

you will have missed a day or

two with letters but I did my

best Sweetheart. Glad you had

a good day at Harrogate. Kenneth

should look very well in his new

coat. Tell him Daddy knows

all about his pockets. Glad also

you were able to get a costume

which looks nice. I don't see how

you could have got one for less

money very well & I certainly

don't think it was extravagant.

I'll tell you how it looks when

I get home again on leave. There

seems to be a few other things

that you ought to get & you

really must you know. What 

about that hat to go with your

fur coat. I know Cox sent me

twelve pounds back pay & that
