Alf Smith’s letter 21 Jan 1917

152 High Street

Southend on Sea


Jan 21st 17


Dear Father


Just a few lines to let you know that I am home for a few days at last.  I could not let you know before as it has been postponed so many times but my patience has been rewarded at last.

I shall be coming to Wood Green on Wednesday morning & probably stay until about Friday.

I mean to have a good time while I am home.

Please excuse more news now.

Glad to say I am quite well & hope you are all in the best of health.

Well Au revoir for the present.


With much love

From your devoted
