Dear Bill / We received your letter this morning & were not surprised in a way, as we had heard your name mentioned in several letters, we had had from Marjorie Both her Dad & I feel the same, Marjorie is of an age now when we feel she should know whether she feels she should be engaged to you & it is for her to decide, although on the other [inserted] hand [/inserted] we do appreciate her thought of writing to us about it, we’ve always had their confidence, on most things & all we can say is, that we wish for the very best that life can hold, for both of you in the future.

[page break]

particularly in the way of health & comradeship There is no doubt, as you have made up your minds that you are suited to each other, it will be nicer for you, when parted to feel that you have someone to think about & look forward to something more in the future & to feel you each have a purpose in keeping true to each other. As I have been writing this a wire has come, so we were wondering if you are moving sooner than you expected, if so we do both wish you God speed in all your endeavours & hope we [inserted] shall [/inserted] soon be at peace & living under different conditions, hoping that we may have an opportunity of meeting before long, so Bye Bye & all the very best comes us both.
G & D. Withall
