The Lodge 26 Dec 1916

My dear brother

There is probably a great deal which I could tell you, of interest to you if I can only think of it. Jack is looking far from well & is much worried now for various reasons.

His great friend Sir Wm. Curtis of Caynham Court is dead. He has been told by his doctor that he will never be able to do any more work either here or abroad. Lastly the negotiations which he had almost completed for a house have developed a troublesome obstacle. However Watts & he & I walked to [?thorn] yesterday & he did not seem the worse though his foot troubled him a bit at the finish. Bell is here & looks older of course, but it is hard to realize that she's a grandmother. Rachie and Jack, Len's children are here also

Kindest regards to Fred Fowkes, Pomeroy, Miss Gore & the others & best wishes to all for the New Year. One thing I see for certain by my visit to England that there is no place for you over here. There is no lack of men of your age & class. It is the young men only who are wanted.

Yr. affect brother Arthur
