Harrogate Herald - 28th November 1917

W Rowling writing from Queen's Hospital, Sidcup, says : 

I am writing these few lines to thank you for the Herald, which comes regularly. I can assure you it goes a long way to cheer one up, especially in a case like mine, as I am likely to be in hospital for many weary months, as it is a very slow process mending jaws. I am quite hopeful of being made nearly as well as formerly. I'm sorry to see so many pals have made the supreme sacrifice, and, to hear that my old CO, Colonel Joselyn, has been wounded. I daresay the Beechwood Boys have been in the latest push, as they were round the district last time I heard of them. I'm glad your strike trouble was short-lived, as I know for myself that you have some of the most contented workers a master could wish to have. I see Corporal Gamble, of Oatlands, is in hospital about four miles from here. I shall go and see him when I fell like doing the distance. I haven't been up to town yet, but I shall be going to see the latest show some of these days. Remember me in your weekly letter to all my pals both in the 1/5th and 2/5th West Yorks, and say I am going on as well as can be expected. I don't know of any more news this time. Hoping Mrs B and yourself are enjoying good health.
