Dear Sisters,


I was very pleased to see you & Ada, I thank

you all for coming as I could not come to see you.

I know Ada was downhearted when she had to leave

me. I could see you did not like it & I felt the same.

I only hope its my luck to come out alright. Tell Ada

& those at home to cheer up & hope for the best & trust

to God that I may be one of them to come through

alright. I will try to come home as soon as I can

& I will try to see Sarah some weekend. Thank mother

& father for what they sent & I thank Ada & you for

your kindness to me. Remember me to Will & Lisie & tell

them I am going on alright so far & look after Ada

for me. I dont think I can write any more so I will

close with Best of Love to all good night & God

Bless you.


I reamin

Your loving

Brother
