Dear Emmie

In answer to yours which I received this morning. I did get your second letter of the 1st inst but I had about two in hand and somehow it did not get answered. I think it was great of you walking all that distance: didn’t it seem rather a along way. I would like to hear all about that adventure at Regent’s Park. I am sorry for May Fowler it is very hard especially as both of them have lost there partners. By the way; I am sorry to hear that you got drenched and caught a cold, I always am mourning over something or the other when I write to you. I hope my letters do not bore you. Certainly you only asked me if I would like you to come down but you also told me something in your “post script” about “(M.H. i.t.h.p.o.a.b.)” work it out and don’t forget to let me know if you find the solution. You know I want to see you. I wonder why Mr Hickin has given in his resignation was there any excuse. I suppose he has a better job as army chaplain. I do think this rumour is coming true but I hope it is postponed for some time because I want to try and get leave for the 15/9/17. That theatre contract has blown over; the boys did not get enough for their liking so struck. I played one night and got 2’/2d so it was not bad. I have an idea that they will want us back again so I am waiting to see what the others do, I hope this war does not see another year and somehow I don’t think it will. I have Bertram’s letter to hand and will answer it some time today.

I conclude Your ever loving sweetheart Will xx
