“Don’t imagine this is a sort of last will & testament”

Percy Spencer wanted his sister Florence to control his finances while he was at the front – evidently not trusting other family members.

Dear WF

I’m sending to Pay Office today authority to remit to you £25. Will you please bank this sum for me.

It is not to be touched for family purposes without my knowledge and consent, or until after my a/c has been settled up by the Pay Office should I be unlucky enough to get knocked out.

Don’t imagine this is a sort of last will & testament – fact is, I’ve just received information there is this sum due to me up to June 6.

All’s well

Love to all

Yrs
Percy

PS Let me know when you get cash. It should be in about a fortnight or so.
