Notes, topics or text 

The initials "CH" appear again on this letter, after a hiatus of a month. The envelope is addressed in Frank's hand.

The first part of the letter, typed by an "inexpert typist", Rinder, contains a message from Captain Bennett (E.N. Bennett), document .080002b, record 119666. Rinder had difficulty reading it and thus reproducing it. Mrs. Eliot has been to see her, talking about T.S. Eliot's plans with regard to military service. Rinder breaks off typing and begins writing by hand. The messsage is document .080002a, record 116767.

Lady Russell (i.e. Elizabeth Russell) sends her love.

Frank's part of the letter, written on the verso in ink, is no longer legible. The paper is thin, the typing visible on the verso, and his words are obscured.

There is a transcription of this letter, however: document .054832, record 79627, which (almost incredibly) includes what Frank wrote.
