Letter from Mother & Joe 14/1/17, also letter from Mrs. Stronge [indecipherable] to say J.A.C. was dead.
Note all the news, glad all's well.
Last night met old Marine Capt. PEARSE of Pastoralists Review at TURF CLUB, Cairo , he returns to Australia in a week or so, he may mention meeting me in his Paper.
Today I passed the Turksprisoners, in site of our old Aerodrome Camp Heliopolis – they are well clothed & fat & photos & Cinemas are sent for propaganda work back to Constantinople & to Syria.
