George Ryan’s letter home dated 18 Feb 1915
18 Feb 1915
Thanks for your letter dated 14 Jan which I received last Friday, 12th Feb, a day after the mail had gone out.
We are beginning to settle down here now. It seems to get hotter every day, but we are still working hard.
We’ve seen a few snakes since we came here, only small ones though. Another fellow & I killed one a few days ago, it was 20” long& as thick as your finger.
Hope you are getting on with the piano I wish I had the chance of keeping on with it. I expect I shall have forgot nearly all I ever knew by the time I’m able to start again.
I have not written to you before as I don’t suppose it matters who I write to, I suppose each letter goes round the house just the same.
Remember me to Mr. Clark,
Yr loving brother
