Dear Emmie

In answers to yours of the 27th Our’s was the band which played before “Geogie”, and also the drum and fife band of the 99th T.R.Batt. I hope you have no trouble in finding your friends on Monday. I do not know whether to write you once, or twice. I think I will write a P.C. for you to get Tuesday and a letter for Wednesday. I nearly forgot x Herbert Bertie is getting a dabster; I don’t know what he suspects between you and me. Two years ago I never thought I would get the chance to want you so much as at present. I cannot settle down to anything because I cannot get you out of my mind for one minute. What did the trays have on them that fell on the Gentleman’s head. I hope you didn’t drink too much tea. (It is now dinner time. 1 ocl.) We had cold meat & salad for dinner. The salad consisted of lettuce, about 4 pieces of cucumber about 1/16 of an inch thick, and a bit of the skin of a tomato between the 6 of us. We had tabioca afterwards and I thought it was stew when I looked at it at first. I am going to church this evening and I am sure to think of you: sitting in the front row at the Mish: perhaps. Well my Dear I have no more to write now so will conclude.

With Best Love Your Ever true sweetheart Will xx
