Reading Experience:

Evidence:

I should like you to read the long article in the December number of Blackwood’s Magazine although it costs 2/6. It gives a very excellent history of the pleasant war and pre- war little habits of our friends the Bosches. It is called “For Women” and is written by a woman. If you do get it I should like you to keep it for me as it is the best thing of its kind I have read, and it will be a gentle reminder of what we owe the Hun in the days when some people will have forgotten there ever was a war.
