Dear Emmie

I received your letter at 3,o’clock this afternoon; I dare say it got here at the first post but we have been out all day. I am glad to hear you had a good seat going home. I was on the bridge but did not see you this time; I think you must have been looking at the wrong window. I would not have asked you to write if I hadn’t have wanted to know whether you got home alright. This morning the sun was shining brightly and I thought we were going to have a fine day but it turned dull and is now raining. I went into a shop which was open last night to try to get some Goss china but as I expected they did not sell it. I don’t think I have anything to do tonight so I will make another attempt. I am sorry I forgot last time but that does not go to say that I think any the less of you. This morning when we were out we came to a brook, so I said to C. Gibbs “Let’s have a game at jumping across till somebody wins and falls in” so we started the ball roling. Before we had been going at it long one of the boys fell off of the bridge full length in the brook and got soaked through. Some sport! he didn’t laugh though. I don’t think there is any more to say now only that I always want you; so I will conclude

With Best Love Will xx
