David to Ginger (Ethel Linn) Holzminden Post Card No 12 Aug 4th 1918
I have your letters of April 16th & May 24th & 26th and lastly one from Erl with a vastly amused gentleman on the heading & a page full of kisses. Please thank her very much indeed & tell her I will write to her when I get to Holland later on. Mum tells me she has received the belting. Please thank John very much for getting it for me. I have now got my marching boots, so that for the moment I am well off in this way, but I shall be glad to have the belting too. Very glad my fellows got your socks & that you have had letters from some of them. The boy seems to be in fine form physically, judging by the gymnasium examinations. I was amused by his anxiety as to how he would look in the girls eyes, but not at all surprised, seeing that he is the son of his mother &, well…. It looks as though it is in the blood. Doesn’t it? Here’s to him! Hope you are alright & quite recovered from measles.
