I have no letter from you this week yet and I am thinking long but I suppose I will get one tomorrow. God help you these cold nights in the trenches in the wet and everything, it is awful. I wish it was over and you were home again for good. I hope Mother and Father are still well. I never see your brother and I be watching out for him any time I am in Sandy Row. This is all I can think of now till I hear from you again. I have never got that photo yet. I am yours always in love. Minnie M. G.

"HERE WE ARE AGAIN, AS HAPPY AS KEN BE" Welcome to all our readers - old and new -  The Ganaway Lyre emerges from its annual hibernation to serve an expectant clientele.  Bigger! Brighter! and Better than ever !!!  Readers will note our change in name from the Camp Lyre to the Ganaway Lyre.  We would like however to point out that the policy remains unchanged.  Our motto, since this paper made its debut fourteen summers ago IS AND SHALL BE "THE TRUTH  THE WHOLE TRUTH  AND ANYTHING BUT THE TRUTH"

Dear Brian, Sorry for the delay in sending you this book but I have been very very busy.  We removed to a new house on Wednesday last and it is very comfortable.  It is on the Garnerville? Road. i.e. where the City buses turn on the Holywood Road.  The house is one of the Aluminium type houses.  They are very modern inside and everything is up to date.  I hope yourself and Geraldine are both well.  Whenever you see her tell her that I will write during next week. Now study hard and let us all see what you can do! Yours sincerely David? & Pat
