Letter to Rev. R.M. Laporte Payne 18 October 1916

Thank you for your kind letter, you will be interested to know, I am on draft for France & may have to go any minute or it may be weeks, I hope to see Finchley first, & should be glad if you would pray that I might. I am getting on as well as can be expected I think. As my stay is so uncertain here & the room so limited I had rather not have any parcel sent me, there is 10 of us in a bell tent about 16 feet across the floor, there are swarms of soldiers here. Please remember me to all at the Vicarage & those who are interested in me, I have got my full equipment for France. I remain yours gratefully & sincerely J. Plumb.
