Dear Father

Just a few lines to thank you for parcel, also for letter from Jess, they are all very nice just a treat.

I was extra pleased to receive it, as it was the first news I had for nearly a month.  Did you get many letters from me I wrote several.

How did you enjoy your Easter I suppose you spent it quietly.  I was surprised to hear Ethel had left school, time passes so quickly I will write to her & Winnie the first opportunity.

A FEW CIGARETTES & Harrisons Pomade would be useful when you are sending another parcel but I am not in a hurry though I would mention it now.

Have you heard from Albert Taylor lately I would like to write to him if you know his address.

Glad to say I am quite well the weather is very cold & wet.

I have not heard from Southend for sometime have you had any news lately?

Well I think I must finish now.

Glad you are all in the best of health.

Au revoir

With much love

From your devoted Son
