Dear Jessie
We’ve had another inoculation today and my arm feels a bit stiff so I shall not be able to write so much tonight. It’s rather difficult [deleted] how [/deleted] because all the chaps are making their beds and blankets are flying about and curses are being hurled about the room.
We had a lecture from the M.O and he told us a good story.
Here it is.
Sometimes in middle age men get a structure. That is a closure of the life in the doings and to cure this they insert pipes down it. Well
[page break]
they have various sizes of pipes according to the size of the doings and one day a very large negro went in to a clinic for treatment of a structure and ranged on the wall were all sizes of pipes and the doctor took down the largest. On seeing this the negro says “Boss as don’t want to put no fire out [?] only wants to pea”. [sic]
Its [sic] raining and blowing like the devil today. Oh have you posted that book on.
Ever so pleased you are going to [deleted] rugh [/deleted] write everyday. [sic] I will do my best to do the same. Kiss Pam for me and some for yourself. Love to all
from Harry xxxxx
