Scope and content

Friends War Victims Relief Committee, A.P.O., S.5., B.E.F., France. - Thanks Julian his letter with the drawing; wonders whether it was of 'a donkey braying, or a Chinese imaginary animal bellowing'. Apologises for not managing to get a letter to Julian on his birthday; expects he is glad to be nine; wishes he himself could get a year younger instead of older on his next birthday. Has been for a short holiday to Nice, where it was not as warm as he had hoped; it took twenty-six hours by train to get there. Hopes to return to England around 20 March. Glad Julian likes school so much, and is now playing football; asks if he remembers them playing in front of the stable at home. Hears from Julian's mother that she had a nice visit to him last weekend.
