Letter to the Hammonds 29 August 1917.
62 Benyon Road
Dear Ted & Mary
I got your P.C. just as we were leaving the house on Sat morning & received one this morning. We had a very nice holiday the weather kept up until last Friday & then it was so windy that we could scarcely keep on our feet & it went much colder so that we felt quite ready to return to London. I am very sorry that the weather is so bad for you. It is brighter here today but windy. We have had a lot of rain since Sunday. We took our Mothers to Chingford yesterday but it was rather rough for nieces & the Vicar slipped & dislocated his shoulder so it was rather unfortunate. I am glad to say that he is going on as well as can be expected. I am glad to hear that Fred & George are alright. You are not far from Neston. What sort of place is Hoylake it was *** **** when I was at Neston. I must close now ***.
Love to you & Mary also to the boys & Gladys
P.S. I don’t know whether Will wrote to you Kibby Walls husband joins up today.
