I carry your gum leaf and card with tobacco in it in my pocket for luck and I have also got the little Black cat yet that you sent me.
Well dear Miss King I hope you will excuse my short and scribbled letter as I am writing it under very trying conditions (front [dash]) so you will understand.
Thanks so much for your kindness to me I shall never forget you.
Yours Very Sincerely
Lance/Cpl R. Otto
C Coy 2nd Battalion AIF
