Letters

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.
