30/12/2015 'Dear Mother, In answer to your last two letters and which I was glad to get, glad to see you are all keeping well as this leaves me just as usual. Well mother, Mary must have kept her marriage a bit of a secret, for Tillie was telling me in the last letter that she thought she was getting married. So I see she has now already done so. Dawson never writes or neither does Mary so you see I will have no bother calling her by her new name, but I would like a letter from Dawson very much. The time here is very dull and I am beginning to think my time long of going in, it is just like home here plenty of rain and cold weather and nowhere to go and it gets a fellow like me down being used to plenty of life. You need not be scared of me getting married for I think that I will remain single as I am still pretty much of a woman hater and they always get a fellow in a lot of trouble. Well mother, it is just a little bit chancy yet whether I get home this year or not but they have got to let me home next year. I hope that it all goes well and Hitler does not declare war before that. I hear that fags are very dear at home now, I don’t know what a fellow will do for smokes around here now. I have had no reply as yet from Tillie and I was expecting one from her before I got yours, but you answered first. Tell Mary I said to drop me a line sometime and let me know how she is keeping. Well mother, I will have to close as this is all at present, so write soon. From Willie to mother, with love. Xxx
