So the receipt enclosed in your letter must be another parcel altogether

The two men Geo Maitland & John Hobart havent arrived at this unit yet, and Nye & Rodgers I dont think they will get to the 1st again, We are having a very rough time now, It rains every day and its very cold, with mud knee deep everywhere, Cant keep the feet warm at any price, I will look
