my great grandfather Appleyard and Grandfather Wilkinson, Capt of "Fanny", Grandmother Wilkinson (she who gave us our eyebrows) our mother as a little girl and her brother George as a little boy,- our Uncle George, these I hope will be kept safely thro' the war and I hope one day you can see them, and we can discuss what I know of our forbears - who is great-grandfather Clarke? On your father's side I suppose, I don't remember that name on ours.Should love to read Bobby's poems, can you send them to me, I would take great care of them.Enclosed is a photo of Anthony and Mary taken two Christmases ago. Please return when finished gazing at it as Amy only has this print, they and the grandparents have an enlargement but this is the only small one.We won't make rash promises but it would be nice if we wrote ot each other - say once in 3 months, just to keep us au fait with our news - I wonder if we could? This is Feb. 8th, shall I be writing you May 8th. I wonder? Please answer my questions when you return photo.
