My dearest Kitty

I have just had this post card from dear Jack & he ask's me to send to you dear so I am sending it along. it is to say he is wounded dont worry dear any more than you can help. I dont know how I feel. I only can say. "Thank God" he is out of it at last for a few weeks of perhaps a month or [?] & let us hope they will send him home to Reading or some where where we can get at him to see him often "Oh dear" I hope you & the dear baby are well I have been expecting to hear from you I dont know if you are waiting to hear from me. I had a letter from dear Jack last friday saying he was alright this must have happened just after he went up after he had written I do hope & pray its not serious we shall know more about it when he writes again. Am looking forward to seeing you dear Jack tells me the darling can walk how lovely to see her dear. I cant stop to say anymore now Kitty Dear as it is washing day & Mrs Simions is just come, will write again soon. Evie is home with a bad arm the Dr sent her away for a week lots of love

Ever you loving

My dear Kitty

Don't you worry about our dear boy I feel he is quite alright. It is horrible to think of the dear lad being wounded but there is one comfort it will bring him home to us & keep him out of the terrible business for some time. Hope them will send him to a Reading Hospital. Cheer up, my dear & look at the best side kiss dear little Margaret from me. Lots of love to you both
