If you engage a Cook even at 2/-/- a week I will pay all extra expense at Bronte. I do not wish to be an expense or to make work for Day.
Am glad you sent May some clothes for Jack. I expect I shall be too stout for many to fit. What a lot I will have to tell you. I hope to get a decent billet for a home for Dolly & my Babe. 7 weeks & I should be home dear old Mother & Day, I do look forward to it.
Cold better, throat bad. Filled in form for every man re Demobilisation, his previous work, pay, etc.
