I only mention these qualifications in order that you may avoid thinking that I owe him anything and feeling that you should repay. Treat him as a friend of mine but not at all as a creditor. If I remember it I will enclose a cutting from a paper of a hymn that suits my "tum tum" pretty well. It comes from a paper the Westminster Gazette which often has something in it.
I sent Nell a letter of Jack's which you may like to see. Len you know is at Gaza. Some of Ethel's children are at Carleton & she is bringing another over from Petrograd. So Arthur Bridgman has come into his fortune at last. I hope that his anxieties will now be over.
I hope you remember me now & again to the old friends like Jack Musgrave & Bob Swinerton, Fred Pemb, Harry Pooley, Bill Oliver, Dick Elliot, Harvey Combe & Fort & any others you think of.
