Dear Emmie

I am very sorry to have to write this letter in the negative to your question yesterday, but it would not be advisable for you to come down on Sunday.  I would not like you to come into our camp & I do not think it would be allowed; although I want to see you very much.  I am trying for a leave next week-end which I hope is forth-coming.  One of the reasons I cannot get a pass is that I have not yet a hat-badge or belt.  The main reason I should have put in your last letter; as you asked me wether we were going to be inoculated again. I asked the sergeant major for a pass, and he said that we were either going to be done on Saturday or Sunday so you see how I am placed.  Do not worry about me I hardly felt the last lot compared with some of the others, and although the next is double strength, I think I will stick it without fainting.

I cannot write more as they are waiting for me for the band.

I am Yours With Much Love 

Will xx.
