Same Address Deal

 

 

My Dear Brother Sid,

Just a few lines in haste hope they will find you in the best of health as it leaves me very well at present.

I have been down here since last Sunday but are going back tomorrow. “Thank Goodness for that”.

It is about 15 miles from Margate so you see it’s a decent little march.

I have just reckoned our marching up this week and by the time we get back to Margate it will be about eighty miles.  “Some boot leather gone.”  Ha Ha.

Yes I have had a fairly decent time down here only of course it’s a jolly quiet place as usual.

Dear Sid just excuse this very such letter but I really haven’t got any more time to spare.

I will write a longer letter next time.

Goodbye

I remain

Your Affec Brother

Frank W
