Friedrichsfeld My Dear Father,
We have just got a post-card issue so I thought I would send you the first one to know how you are I hope in the best of health & still smiling I have written to Albert this same post so he will let you know all the news which is real good this time as we received our first parcel last Friday cannot tell you all about it here. We are expecting letters soon which you can bet will be very welcome. Glad to say I am A 1 so Cheerio. With much love from your devoted Son.
