Dear Father

 

You will know by the reply that I received your letter in good time; I did not expect to get it so soon.  Thank you very much for replying at once if you could manage to let me know as soon any other week you are going away it will do fine.

They are not issuing any passes for the holidays so I shall have another try for next week.  I am glad you are going to Farnham, & hope you will have a good time it makes a very nice change if you get good weather.  It has been blowing very hard here lately.

Thank you very much for promising to send me another parcel on Wednesday.  I need not tell you that I enjoyed everything the other contained there is only a few cigarettes left now.

Have not anything else to tell you now.

Hope to see you soon

Remember me to all at Farnham; also Jess & Ethel hope they are all well also yourself.

 

With much love

Your devoted

Son

Alf
