Re 26711 PTE McFARLANE, J. 14th Bn.
With reference to your letter of the 23rd ult. I have to inform you that the above mentioned soldier has been arrested and has admitted obtaining the sum of £1 from you, and also to being indebted to Mrs Roberts as stated in your letter.
He is being tried by D.C.M. on charges of absence and of obtaining money by valueless cheques.
I would be glad if you would say whether you wish to include obtaining the sum of £1 as a charge against him. The soldier states that he will pay you as soon as the money which he is expecting from Australia arrives.
