My Dear Mother
Just a few lines in answer to our ever welcome letter which I received alright. And I am glad to know that all at home are [enjoying] their usual good health as this leaves myself at time of writing. I am sorry I have been so long in writing to you. But to tell the truth I could not get time until now. But I sent you a field card every time I got a chance. We are having very nice weather out here now and I hope it may continue as it is very pleasant.
I had a letter from Jennie today and she is still in good health. Well Dear Mother I think I shall close for this time. Hoping this will find all at home in good health. Remember me to Annie and Jimmy. Tell them I shall write to them as soon as I get time.
Your loving son
Hoping to hear from you soon again.
