Just a few lines to let you know I am quite well.
There is not very much news to tell you but thought you would just like to have a few lines from me.
It is not a bad idea to put your address on the back of the envelope when you write as it will be returned without being opened if it does not reach me.
What do you think of the news lately? It looks very good I think we shall soon have to be singing when Tommy comes marching home &c don’t you.
I shall be very glad to hear from you when you have time to write a few lines.
Hoping you are all in the best of health.
With much love
