Dear Emmie

I received your letter this evening so I thought I would answer it before I turned in. It is now nine o’clock. What with the bad light and everybody dancing around you must excuse writing. etc. I hope you enjoy yourself at Brighton Sunday but I am looking forward to next Sunday week. I have not had my tooth out yet as both yesterday and tonight we have had practice. I liked the cake very much thank you and my tooth has not ached since I partook of it. We are not at the theatre yet but we are full up otherwise. I do not remember the “Oh much about the same I suppose” because I was really thinking I liked you better if there is any difference at all. I suppose it is because I do not see so much of you. We went out this morning and played about five marches and got back to barracks at 10 A M and we did nothing all day until this evening: the worst of it is that we are not allowed to go out in the day time. We had a very heavy storm this morning and all the boys got wet through. The boys are turning the lights out and doing gymnastics on the roof supports so I think it is about time I came to a close

From Your Ever Loving Will xx
