Sunday, 2nd June (1918)

We won the contest and the teams go to the ‘show-grounds’ tomorrow, but I’m not going with them, being a bit off colour.  My indisposition is of a kind that makes it awkward to be on parade.

One thought on “Sunday, 2nd June (1918)”

  1. Dear John

    I explored your first Landfall address with pleasure, but the second one . . .

    was declared absent!

    I was hoping to read some of Lincoln’s poems. Have I copied the address incorrectly?

    Warm regards
