Dear Sister,

was mother's Birthday but I am sending a card for her.

I can't say that I know who that chap is from Barkers,

Well sister I hope you are going on alright as I am

alright myself. I received a letter from Sarah this morning

with two photos one of herself & Lily & one of Lily in her

munition clothes. Its nice at Blackpool but we get cold winds

but the air is fresh. I shall like to see you all but

I shall have to wait a bit longer. Well sister remember

me to all at home. I will with love to all good night

& God Bless you all,

I remain

Your Loving
