Dear F & M
Just a short line to say I’m gogging along OK in 1917. I received your last letter a few days ago and suppose you received one from me about the same time. Any how if my letter got astray I would like to say the parcels etc arrived here OK. There is really nothing to relate. Just jogging along quietly. Our Boys played a football match against a neighbouring Divn and we had quite a good afternoon. How are things at home, heard from Geo lately? Suppose everyone is in the army by now. Suppose Gladys has settled down to her studies again.
I am trying to turn into a pipe smoker since I received the pipe & pouch.
Well I think this is about all at present. Hoping you are all well
