Moor Hall, Thorley

Dear Nobby, Just a word to say thank you for your P.C. I am glad to hear that you are well and I hope you didn’t keep the cold long. Jim and I went to Worthing camp for a week and we both enjoyed ourselves. You will see in the paper what sort of co. we helped to make. Pride of the army my boy. Maude sends her best love to you. She and the boy are both quite well. They stayed over here for a few days while we were at camp and the air done them both good. We are busy in harvest now and we have been busy too. Your loving brother Bill
