F Hammond letter 23 Jan 1915

23.1.17
Dear Mar & Pa
Just a line to let you know I received your Pars letter yesterday. Sorry to hear Mars not so well but hope she will be OK again ere you get this. I am practically free from my cold now just a little hanging on me. The weather is very wintry at present the ground being covered about 6 inches in snow and well frozen. We had a practice at football yesterday morning. Just the right thing for warming one’s blood up. Must congratulate Gladys on her smart performance and hope she will keep it up. Had a letter from Will the other day he seems to be up to the eyes in work. I also had a little letter from Geo saying he had been over on Leave. Believe he’s going rather strong over at Southport? I got the enclosure in your letter am wondering whether it is really worth bothering about seeing that I have left it so long and don’t think the war will last so very long now. Anyhow if you think I should you might mention it again in your next correspondence. Will doesn’t seems to forget Miss S. he mentioned her in his letter to me. It reminds me of the fellow who read his character at Blackpool. You’ll have to be very determined with this young man. Well I think this is about all this time just gogging along quietly. Just do what you think fit about the war Loan business.
Luv Fred.
