Dear All, Have just received your letter dated July 1st very sorry to hear Bert Peppler has passed on please convey my sympathies to Mrs Pepper. Am very pleased to hear that Uncle Rege is so well these days. Should imagine it is like starting life afresh for him. By the way Mother there was a note on one of your letters from the censor asking me to tell you not to number your letters—the letters I have received so far bar the last mentioned have all come through without any erasion by the censors. Do not send any other suits out a blanket for the winter and lots of handkerchiefs are what I require most at the moment. Mr Downs was in the Mill not outside—am continuing my studies slowly there certainly is a lot in it. Joan Egerton writes every week, can't understand it!! Very hot today has been quite a heat wave lately. Shall be glad to see green fields again.
Lisle, John, Letter, 3 August
