Received your p.c. and letter and am taking the opportunity now to answer them also to thank you for the books. They are just what I wanted. I shall repay you for them as I couldn't think of letting you stand the expense. Have seen an aeroplane here several times. I am almost sure it is the same one anyways. Am applying for leave fore six days to start next Thursday morning, as than I shall be able to meet you at London. I believe the train from here arrive at the Charing Cross Station. I will write you in a couple of days anyways, or telegraph you if necessary. I shall not know for a couple of days if I can get my pass. I believe the authorities will pay my fare I am applying to go to Malvern and if I get my pass too late to let you know by letter, I will wire you. You can write and let me know what time you will be arriving in London anyways, and I can let you know by wire if I can't come so that you won't have to come to London for nothing.
I had a letter from Sissy written just after we left. Mother hadn't to back from Vancouver then. I haven't heard from Canada since, though I am expecting several letters but I suppose the mails come very irregular now. I have lots to talk to you about when I see you, about the life here etc. but it would take a lot of time to give you much of an idea on paper. My motor-cycle arrived in good condition but I don't know how I am going to manage to run it as gas is so expensive. I am going to try very hard to get in the aviation or M-C corps, prefably the latter. I haven't got a license either, but I think there would be nothing said about riding it here. However, if I can manage the Dispatch Riders corps these little things won't worry me very much. Will be expecting a letter from you in a couple of days. Well ‘till I see you I will say Good-bye.
Your Loving Son
