[LMF Notes]  First Letter from France.  C.G.F. had been sent over as a casualty replacement to the Machine Gun Corps about November 1st.
"Somewhere in France”
Dear Mater et Pater,

Am at last feeling more satisfied being in France.  We landed several days ago and have been travelling pretty steadily since but now at least we are just a short way from our destination.  Of course I can’t tell you where I am but will as soon as possible.

I hope to see Leslie very soon now.  If I have any luck I ought to be able to.  I think he is in the line just now however.

The last letter I got from him was at Seaford just as I was leaving for France.  He wanted me to get him some Xmas presents.  Of course I didn’t even have time to answer him let alone buy him anything.  I was sorry too.  It will be hard to get anything over here.

On the way through London I had a to France I went again to the house of Commons and heard Boner Law introduce the vote of credit for some huge sum.  I have now heard the commons on nearly every different subject.  I hope you get my other letter about my visit to the House at the time of the Irish debate.

Well dear people I am moving now very shortly and must go and get ready.  I will write again to greater length as soon as I possibly can.  I hope business is good also I hope you like the rooms.  I think you ought to be pretty comfortable – Am feeling well –

Lovingly – Cecil
Scribbled from Folkestone did you get it.
