Dear Father


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.

Au revoir

With much love

From your
