Letter with small picture of St Martin’s Plain Shorncliffe
Feb 28th 17
Thought I would just let you know how far we have got on in our travels at present. I expect you have received my P.C.
We left Felixstowe at 7.30 P.M. last night, got to Liverpool Street at 10.30 P.M. went on the Met: from there to Charing Cross. I felt very much like having a run round town on a bus you can bet; left by the 1.40 A.M. train for Shorncliffe got here at 4.30 this morning.
One is just like a prison here; there is about 1 sq. mile of very large houses all boarded in no chance of escape. I should think it must be a fine place in peace time.
What do you think of the news lately? It looks very good I think the Kaiser will soon have to give in or come to terms.
There are several canteens &c within the boundary of the iron cage so we can amuse ourselves alright.
I believe we leave here at 2 P.M. for Folkestone or Dover.
Will write again soon.
Hoping you are in the best of health also Jess, Ethel & Winnie.
How is Mr. & Mrs. Warman & Lilian remember me to them.
Well I think I must finish now.
With much love to you all
