5 June 1918 Wednesday (X to X crossed out)
X I noticed in your letter all about Home am sure the big "Elm" being cut down will be an improvement & also plenty of wood? the Lawns must be an improvement too. X My groom Ebbatson has just got word that his brother won the V.C. in France & a commission- I must share in the reflected glory & probably lose a good groom, but good luck to him!
X Mutual Store parcel arrived safely, many thanks for vegetables & Oleac- Ill write K later on & thank her I wrote Aunt Louie last mail before I knew re Parcel. X
