My dear Emily [1] ,

            Thank you for your letter of the 17th September.  Mary [2] I am sure gives you all the news about our boys.

            Julius [3] is far worse than Pat [4] was, Julius is going on fairly well.

            Pat is almost recovered – Tommy [5] started to join his regiment at the front two days ago.  The first Battalion King’s own Royal Lancaster Regiment.

            I join you in regretting Tandy [6] giving up the law.

            My love to you all

                        yours affectionately
