Letter to Rev. R.M. Laporte Payne 14 Feb 1918
West End Hotel
All letters &c
C/O Messrs Thos Cook & Son
Dear Mr. Payne,
Again I have to trouble you by asking you to pass on the enclosed cheque for two quarters pew rent to the proper authority as I have not the address. I am still unable to obtain a passport for Mrs Burton. In some ways we are better off in India than we should be in England but all the same we are looking forward to our return home. We propose to spend two months in South Coorg in a few weeks time on a Coffee Estate. Except for seeing the great number of troops in Bangalore & high prices, one would not know there was a great war in progress.
We are fortunate in having a church (St. Marks) with services we like here & two very ernest clergymen. Trusting that Mrs Payne yourself & family are well & with kindest regards in which Mrs Burton unites
Yours very sincerely
