Just a short letter to Dollie tonight – Arthur has had a busy day of parades, football finals and paid the men – so he is understandably exhausted.
Arthur to Dollie
Billets – France, Satur. even 9.35pm
… Thanks awfully for your dear letter of Thursday. I was please to get it. To-day, although it is a Saturday has been a busy day for me & I am very sleepy. This morning we paraded 9-12; this afternoon was the final of the Company football: no 6 Platoon just beat No8; 3-2. This evening I’ve spent paying the Company.
But I couldn’t turn in before writing just a few lines to you, dear, to tell of my love & how much you are to me. I will answer your dear letter & send it back to-morrow, dear…
