Scope and content

Friends War Victims Relief Committee, A.P.O., S.5., B.E.F., France. - Originally enclosing three photographs of Paris, where he is now; went up the Eiffel tower 'years ago, in a lift', but has never been on the Great Wheel. Will soon go into the country to work on a farm where animals are bred for sale cheaply to farmers who have lost theirs in the war. Hopes Julian enjoys his last days at home [before starting school], and that Miss Barthorp [his governess] does too. Is sorry that Julian will not now see Tom; perhaps he can write to him. Wonders if Julian has finished the 'history of the Ilond [?]' and the two plays; hopes there will be a performance of the farm play. Must go to work at the office now.
