Am writing to tell you we are to have three day's Musketry at Long Bay. So I won't be here on Friday. The new man we have here says all troops should have three days shooting at the least. Kirkland has gone from here left on Tuesday. I am afraid no one shed any tears without they were for joy at his going has been called back to Melbourne & may they keep him there.

Dont remember the train leaving there. All I remember is getting into the Liverpool train there. The next I was on all fours on the ground here. I must have gone to sleep as soon as I sat down. Whether some one called me at Liverpool or not I don't know. Have a faint recollection of seeing
