[13 March 1917] good way before you’d find more fun and spirits (not whiskey) than out here.
What a pity Jack not getting his job – anyway never mind the war can’t last for ever, and if he’s sure of a good job after that’s the great thing – I had a letter from him the other day – he’s not so very far away – and I think we should surely be able to fix up something. I only hope we may – it would really be topping.
How splendid Father getting on so well. I’m sure you’re all looking forward to the decent spring weather – which surely cant be long now.
Moser is still doing for me, so all goes well.
Now I think I will end this as I am getting a wee bit cold & stiff. Ever so much love to yourself & Father & all.
Your very loving son Charles.
