Letter to Rev. R.M. Laporte Payne 18 June 1917

Dear Mr. Laporte Payne,

 

I have to thank you for your kind letter of the 14th inst received on my return from Birmingham.  It was kind of you to have taken so much trouble, I will keep Mr. Storr’s letter by me and as you say I think the best thing to do is to get into an O.T.C. and train for the Artillery.

 

When the time comes and it is necessary to fill up papers etc I shall avail myself of your kind offer to sign same.

 

I am anxious to get into “Khaki” as soon as possible, London is no place for the “unemployed” at the present altho’ I have not had a holiday for nearly 4 years excepting of course the journey home from Singapore.

 

I shall look forward to letting you know how I get on and with kind regards, I am

Yours sincerely

Signature unreadable.
