Baldock: September 22nd 1913

My Dearest,
You will find here some rather indistinct views of Bury: I have been out to have a much needed shave. It took ½ hour to find a hairdressers. Of course they did not return until 8.15 last night after I had rushed to finish your letter. I wonder what you are doing now dear (12.35 noon). Cannot say much here as I am not using code but can send you much love & kisses I think.
From your own Rothwell.

Hairdressers- always had to get an appointment when you most need it! This is the first time he mentions 'the code'...more will follow.

It is interesting that he openly mentions code...this could have alerted his superiors who had to do the censoring...

This was just prior to the war, so I think the code was set up to get around nosy parents! No texting back then...
