Couldn't believe my eyes when I got up & found I was at Liverpool. Only seemed like five minutes from the time I had got into the train. I found my way to my tent lay down boots & all.

Will rub the stomach with the dixie lid if one fails the two should succeed. Tell Mrs Smith I received her letter the following morning alright. There were five men died here on Monday night. This menongitis & are still going off with it I believe. There is a rumer they are going to quarantine the camp. don't know how true it is but if it keeps on something will have to be done.
