MARKET HARBOROUGH.
18th. Sept.

Dear Mrs. Wareing,

I was delighted to hear your good news, and I can quite understand how relieved you feel, to know that your husband is safe. Only those people who have anyone directly in the war, can understand the worry when anything goes wrong.

My boy is at the front, and we have not heard for a week, so of course we worry.

[page break]

Yes, I am very busy with my job, and now that I am getting old, I feel that going out to work, and doing all the housework, is really too much. However, when the basic ration of petrol is given, I expect my job will end.

It was the Harvest Festival yesterday. The church was full and the choir was full, so everything went with a swing. I must confess I enjoy a packed service much more than when the place is empty.

Well! Best wishes Yours sincerely, G. Gouter
