Dear Sister

    Just a few lines thanking

you both for your letters, camp life 

is alright but its the work we

get to do, we are on horses five

times a day + we get no time to

do anything, Well Sisters I am

pleased to hear the things in

the garden are doing well, I

should like to be there to look

after them, I don't think the

manure you mentioned is much

good there are plenty better

but if you have a tin use

it as ordered + water well, I 

should like you to look after

the roses + lillies so that you

can have a few flowers,

         2/

I don't know how long I shall

be here but there are a lot

of new chaps coming up, they

say that Preston is only going

to be a receiving station +

we shall be moved to another

depot before we go out but of

course so to that I can't say

Well Sisters I tried for a week

end pass this week but they

say that there is non unless

on domestic reasons so I dont

suppose I shall see you remember

me to all at home trusting you

are all well, I will close with

love good night + God Bless you

all

                 I Remain

               Your Loving

              xxx Brother
