MARKET HARBOROUGH.
10th. Sept 1944,

Dear Mrs. Wareing,

It was very good of you to write such a long letter to Mrs Lowe, and to ask that it should be passed on to me to read.

I am very sorry for you in your sad time, and I do hope & pray that one day you will hear good news.

My son is in France, and we did not have a line for nearly a fortnight, and I can assure you, we were

Very worried. The letters from France are not coming through at all well just now, but it may be on a/c of these big battles which are raging on the entrance to Germany.

I was interested to read that you have gone back to your old job. My word, I should think they were pleased to have you again, as you are so efficient.

Someone has just told me they saw you in Harborough the other day. Please come & see me when you come again.

Fond thoughts, Yours sincerely G. Gouter.
