2pp., 12mo. Good, on lightly-aged paper. The letter is written in pencil, and begins: 'Sir, | I am awfully sorry to say that I have just been ordered to report tomorrow to G. H. Q. where I shall very probably receive the order to go to the Yankee Army. | I am really very sorry to leave you without having even been able to present to you my respects and my thanks for the kindness you have always shown to me during the time I have been attached to this brigade which is now exactly a year ago. | I shall no more have now any lecture to do as I do not feel inclined to lecture the Yankees!!!' He concludes by expressing the hope that 'little you-you and her young brother [Potter's children] will sometimes think of the french [sic] interpreter who liked to hear of their doings'. Docketed at head by Potter: 'Please destroy. | [signed] H.C.P.', and at the end: 'Such a nice chap. The one who sent sweets & the flowers to June. | [signed] H.C.P.' After a distinguished military career in India, Potter's saw active service in the Great War (Battle of the Somme; Battle of Arras; 3rd Battle of Ypres, and others; wounded four times) with the King's (Liverpool Regiment), on the Western Front throughout the entire First World War.
