Just a few lines to let you know I am quite well.
I had a letter from Albert to-day. You may guess I was pleased to receive it. It is the first I have had from home since I have been here. Did you receive all my letters I wrote I sent two & a P.C. It seems a long time when one is waiting but I am not the only one there are several men have not received any yet. I was just wondering if they had gone astray.
Glad to say the weather is much better now. It has been vary cold & windy.
I am very comfortable here now I have got used to it again am having a very good time here.
Well I think I must conclude now.
Hoping you are all in the best of health.
With much love
