[underlined] Dear Douglas [/underlined]

I have had news of your progress and health for sometime now. In fact only received a letter from your mother last Thursday, she seems very cheerful and pleased to get your cables and letters, now that I have got your address I am writing you a few lines in the hope that it will cheer you up too, I often recall our schooldays and when I give your mother a report on the “gang” Hughie, BenPass, Arnold & myself, the first two are now married and A & myself engaged, she could hardly credit it, she still thinks of us all as children, though you and I have both passed the quarter century mark!!! old men what!

I am not expecting a reply Douglas,

[page break]

as I expect you are restricted as to the number of letters you can send, just as I am restricted in the material (news) I can tell you. However I shall probably hear from your mother as to whether you have received this safely.

Father has had to retire from work on account of ill health, about 14 months ago now, but he seems to have picked up remarkably, I was home this last Thursday & Friday and am pleased to be able to report satisfaction and good spirit on “all fronts”.

Well Douglas I dare not write any more in case I exceed the limit, but shall be pleased to remain in touch with you as limited as it is.

Trusting you are keeping well, chin up old boy and think of the good days to come.

The very best of luck & wishes from your old pals & in particular

Sincerely yours [underlined] Ted [/underlined]
