My Dear Brother Sid,

Just a line to let you know I arrived back safe at 10 o’clock.

They made us draw all our stuff. It was about 1 o’clock when I crawled into bed.

“And some bed at that too”. Ha Ha.  I hope you got back alright.

Well Dear Sid, I must thank you once again for all your kindness I’m sure it was a grand time for me, it couldn’t have been better.

Now I’m back once again at this job, talk about enough to make one fed up.

Still I shan’t always be in it I hope.

Well Dear Sid, I haven’t much to talk about. ” What I have written doesn’t sound too good “does it?”

Still, that’s how I feel tonight. Ha Ha.

Well Goodbye

I remain

Your Affec Brother

Frank
