My dear Father,

Many thanks for your letter, received to-day.  I return the License.  I don’t know why they want it & shall be glad if you will pay the necessary fee & repay yourself from Mother’s balance, which she has for me.  I suppose the Insurance people will want to get what they can from the waggonette people, but it would be much simpler if they would pay up & not worry further. Cecily told me the pram was running well & I hope you will soon drive it again yourself.  I only got the information out of the Gazette.  I assumed that someone would write & mention it, but they don’t seem inclined to, so I suppose that is all I shall get.  They don’t seem to give


any specific reason for it either, which I thought they always did, so I am still in the dark as to why I got it. The ribbon arrived all right, thanks. No news.  We are out of the line & in a farm which they started shelling last night for no reason apparently. However they dropped a whizz bang in the yard outside our front door & then we thought it time to quit.  It now appears that there used to be some big guns in this yard & the Hun apparently thinks they are still here.  It is quite certain that he was after batteries, as our guns were all having a little bombardment at the time & this was the bosche’s retaliation.

Love to all Jack.
