My Dear Mother
I now take the pleasure of writing a few lines to you hoping they will find all at home in good health as this leaves myself at present.
Well Dear Mother I have got some news for you. If all is well I shall be home on leave on Sunday the 9th June. So what do you think of that? I hope nothing happens this time which may prevent me from [gething?].
I hope you have got alright again. The weather is very nice at present. I do hope it may continue until after I get my leave. Well this is all at present. I shall write soon again to you.
Your loving son
