A.A. Laporte Payne letter to Muriel 27 September 1917
Same old place.
Sept 27th 1917
My own darling
Thank you so much for your dear note which awaited my arrival. It was most thoughtful of you, and was just what I wanted to cheer me up a bit.
I am living now on the memory of my delightful leave – the best I have ever had – thanks to you chiefly – and others.
I will write more tomorrow. At present I am up to my eyes in work – I am in charge of the battery in the line and there have been a lot of changes. I have been out all day and now have several things to see to. I will send a proper letter tomorrow. Please forgive this. Surroundings are more uncongenial than ever.
How are you now
Fondest love dearest & many kisses
