Letter (re-discovered, out of sequence): to Father - July 12th 1916
My Dear Father
I got your letter this morning. I hope mother is not taking it too hardly and you are all keeping as cheerful as possible under this terrible shock. We shall miss him most frightfully as he always had such a soothing effect on everyone. I am very sorry for you all after what you have gone though. I hope Dolly is taking it bravely as that will help a good deal.
I am fit and well and still living a life of ease and luxury well behind the firing line.
Your loving sonCuthbert
