My Dear Brother Sid,

Just a few lines in answer to your letter of a few days ago.  I was so pleased to hear that you were quite well as I am still in the “pink”.

Glad to hear that you have a little more work we never get out of a job down this way. Ha Ha.

I am sorry the rain spoilt your trip but I guess you enjoyed yourself alright.

You got wet inside “eh”.  Sounds bad.

Dad wrote and told me about his job in London, it will be jolly fine for him.

We are moving this week Sid, I guess I shall be closer home, if the rumour is right.

Do not write you hear from me again please.

It as been very wet down here this last night or two.  The rain simply pours in the tent so you can guess how pleased I shall be to get out of canvas and off the East Coast too.

Well, Sid you must excuse this short letter as I haven’t much time to spare so I will say Goodbye.

I remain

Your Affec Brother

Frank
