Arthur's letters - August 1917


Arthur 43

26th August 1917

Dear Mother and Father,

Just a line to let you no I am keeping alright and hopeing you and the children are keeping the same as I haven't heard from you a long time. 

I no you haven't a lot of time but it’s alright to hear a little bit about home sometimes. 

It's right enough about Dot. She writes when she wants something. I am afraid she will have to want just at the present. 

Some nice weather we are getting now for harvesting. I bet they are making the best use of it now. 

Mrs Doe’s husband has had to go. I thought perhaps he would have got out of it, the job he was on when I was home but let's hope it is all over by the time he has to come to France.

I have seen [??] Valentine since he has been back off leave but not to speak to him. 

How is Grandmother this year? I hope she is getting her harvest in now. 

I haven't anymore news to tell you just now.

So goodbye. 

Love from your son,


I haven't got the papers.
