My Dear Mother
Just a few lines hoping they will find yourself and all at home still enjoying your usual good health as this leaves myself in the same at present. I am sorry I have been so long in writing to you but I always send you a field card to let you know how I am getting on. I am getting your letters alright now. I had a letter from Jennie and she is in good health. The weather still continues to be fine out here. Tell Jimmy I am expecting a letter from him to let me know how things are going on. I think I was telling you how I saw T Moffatt and he is looking alright and was asking for you. I believe Sam has gone into hospital again. I expect he will get his discharge soon. Do you have any word from Jack or does he ever be home? I had no word from him this long time.
Well I think this is all now hoping to hear from you soon again. I will now draw to a close for the present.
Your loving son
