Boulogne March 7 1915 My dearest Father. I have been most ungrateful not to answer sooner about the motor. I heard Mr Malcolm was coming and I waited to see what he said. He is delighted and most grateful. He says that motor will, he thinks, do excellently. You will send Kirke I suppose? And thank you very much dearest. I haven't written a word since I came back. I have been buried in work - it's an awful business picking up the threads. Tiger went home yesterday for a fortnight's leave. Three nights I have dined with Louis Mallet or he with me - he is here on a commission with Lord Onslow. And last night I dined with Ian Malcolm and Sir A. Lawley. Ursula L. was there and on her way to a hospital at Dunkirk [Dunkerque]. We went after dinner to see an ambulance train come in - that's why I didn't write yesterday; I wasn't in till 11.30.
And today I have a fantastic amount to do and can't write more. Your ever affectionate daughter Gertrude.]
