I remember my Dad drinking occasionally in the Letters, although he drank mainly in the Fairfield at the bottom of Well Lane in Tranmere.I remember one occasion when I snuck into the Letters(I was underage at the time frown and being absolutely horrified at seeing Dad sitting there! The dear old soul didn't say a word,but just bought me a drink.Mind you, I got a right telling off when I got home blush
