Volume 1: Letters written on active service, A-L, 1914-1919 - Page 450
Dear Mother & Father,
Recieved your letter written on the 29 June yesterday. Aunt forwarded it on. Was sorry to hear Father was not well. I heard you were not looking to well Mother Dear, now mind and do not overdo yourself. You are doing too much I think, in fact I am sure.
Was glad to hear all the rest of the family are well. I am feeling tip top, and am in great condition.
Everything is going on well, the only thing wer are getting a fair amount of rain.
I was very sorry to hear about Cobcroft. I heard Christmas was back at Neutral Bay. He put a bandage on my leg [at] Pozieres.
Did you recieve the last lot of photographs that Miss Astin sent you. They were not bad I think a good few letters must go astray, or take a trip to the bottom, as I do not get any reply to a lot I post.
Hoping you are all well. Best wishes & love
Your loving Son
