Private J Drury says : 

I am sorry to say that I saw in last week's Herald about poor Pearson, and I must say he was one of the most amiable chaps I have ever known, and very cheerful too. I know it will be a big loss to you seeing he was the man who did the book ruling and other jobs. I hope the others on the staff are in the best of health. I have been knocking about the country very much lately, but I think I am settled for the winter now. There is a lad called Yates in the RFA here, and I think he comes from Oatlands district. He is a Harrogate lad. I have made inquiries about him and tried to see him, and last week - I think it was Wednesday - when I asked some of his pals about him, they told me he had a bad cold and was laid up in his billet
