I received your letter this evening about 6 o’clock; it was the first distribution today so I do not know what time it got down here. Directly I opened your letter I said “Hello! I’ve got a new name” aloud. Sorry I did not read the next two words “No remarks”, first. Glad to hear that you enjoyed yourself at Caterham; am very surprised at Eva. Am glad to hear that Maud is so much better but she cannot be cured. I expect my leave this week. The Adjutant was going to speak to the Colonel this afternoon about it and I hope I am not disappointed. I am sorry I can’t write more as I want to catch the 7.30. post. This is the last one from here tonight. The last post from the main P.O. goes about 8.45.
With Very Best Love Will xxx
P.S. I do like your “crested” notepaper. Sorry I omitted to answer this question before.
P.S.S. We are moving tomorrow but I do not know the new address. The old one will find me.
