Scope and content

Paris. - Hopes that Julian got his postcard from Dôle. Travelled back to Paris on a night train which was so busy that for two hours he and his friend had to sit on their knapsacks in the corridor. Is busy starting a lending library for relief workers all over France; is 'allowed to send letters without stamps' but will stamp a letter one day so Julian can have one. Tells him to send any letters to his mother to forward on. Hopes he is happy [at school]; hears his mother is soon coming to visit. Sorry he will not be back for Christmas, but hopes to return in February or March; will come to visit him at school. Does not see many traction engines in Paris. Asks to be remembered to Mrs Fish [the headmistress].
