Harrogate Herald - 23rd May 1917
Lance Corporal Palphreyman, who is in the 19 General
Hospital School, Alexandria, says :
I am now in Egypt, but I don't like it as well as India. I hope
to be out of hospital very soon now, as I have had enough of it.
Enteric fever is a rotten thing, as you don't know how it will leave
you. I saw in your paper the kind words of cheer, and I wish this
letter to convey my best wishes and luck to you and all your staff.
