France: “The weather still keeps fairly good”

Postmark: Absent

Dear Mother

Just a card to say that I received your letter yesterday alright.  Glad to know that all at home are still enjoying good health as this leaves myself in the same here at present.  I am sorry that I have not time for a letter just now, but I shall do so as soonas I have time.  The weather still keeps fairly good and I hope that it continues to do so.  No more at present.

I remain your loving son

“Greetings from France”: an officer and a man from the ranks look wistfully into the distance amongst the conical tents of camp.
