11th December 1915
A short letter from Arthur – he’s exhausted from parade and map work for the CO and is looking forward to the arrival of the miniature from Dollie.
Arthur to Dollie
Billets, Satur. Even. 9.30pm
… Thanks awfully for your dear letter of Thursday. I’m feeling tired to-night. On parade all the morning: this afternoon I hoped for a rest. I had also planned to write to Rosa [Pulman] & to Dick [Agius]. But just before lunch the CO sent for me – wanted me to go into the Brigade to make a copy of a map. So I went in after lunch & have been on it ever since.
You are a darling to worry about the parcel & the miniature. You generous little soul … I’ve felt closer than ever to you to-day dear …
