George Ryan’s letter home dated 25 Mar 1915
25 Mar 1915
Your letter of 24th Feb received. I hope you use all your fingers on the type-writer. It’s very nicely done & set out but never type your name at the end. Always sign a letter, else it might come from anybody for all the receiver knows. (Ahem.) Hope you passed your shorthand exam. No, I didn’t know I’d got any certs to come, I’d forgotten all about sitting for those exams. Please let me know what certs they are & for what speed.
Should like to have seen & heard you playing your duet with Mr. Beake, I suppose he saw you home safely afterwards.
Sorry to hear you have to work an hour longer; I suppose you miss your early evening class.
Remember me to Alf Tyrrell
Yr loving brother
