Fred Firth's WWI letters

May 29th 1925

The following letter, from Fred's uncle Herbert Firth is in an envelope to Mr Fred C Firth, Gatehead, Marsden, Nr Huddersfield. It is written on Firth Bros headed paper. The "great day" referred to is presumably Fred's marriage. Within the envelope is also a printed poem "Lines on a Remarkable Circumstance Connected with Bretton Hall" which recounts the Ulysses-like return of the Lord of Bretton, after 20 years at sea, to his wife who has just remarried.
