Dear Father Mother & Little Dorothy
Recieved your three letters one from each also another Australian. Well I am glad to hear you are all well. My word you are all working for the soldier's. I recieved another letter from Aunt Florrie and answered it right away. She sends me very nice letters. I am sorry Arthur has to send Gwladys back. They are so attached to one another. I suppose she is back by this. Give her my love & tell her paper is so scarce you cannot write you cannot obtain it at any price.
So Mr Bannister & family were over. Give them my love. I saw young Macauly this morning. He is now in the engineers He looks quite well I am feeling tip top & so far have dodged all sickness. I am glad to hear the Russians are doing well. I think they will give them jip during the winter The Germans will find it pretty tough during the snow time
Tell jack or any others that i cannot write unless they drop me a line and put an envelope & paper inside. Stan is quite well also Nartha & P Hayes.
