Mr. P. Lister,

Northam,
Southampton. (By hand.)
Dear Sir,
ABSENCE FROM EMPLOYMENT.
We are rather surprised to note your continued absence from the important work in progress here, and have to say that the Armistice signed by Germany does not decrease the importance of the work upon which you are engaged.
It is essential that you take up your duties without further delay.
Yours faithfully
