brother is near here & came over for tea to-day.

This was rather strange for he did the same

thing last year when the CO came out.

  When we get settled into our place I expect

we shall get letters. Some were delivered

to-day but they were sent off for the date which

we should have moved away, but for the

fog. Those few calm days were very nice

Darling. I wonder what sort of a journey you 

& Kenneth had & have you since settled

down. It was good & plucky of you to come

to the station & I think all the regiment 

appreciated it. Our regular supply of

Daily Mails have not started yet but we

have seen a few & find most of the

news good. I see that you are going

to exist on few luxuries according to the

Premier's speech. Still I don't think it will

make very much difference to you & Kenneth

for you had very few luxuries on the

Plain. Well, Pet, all my thoughts come to you

May all happiness wait upon you & may

both of you keep real well & happy until

I come back to look after you. Hope you will

be able to read a real lot of love in

this. Kiss Kenneth for me & tell him to grow

up to be a good soldier. Please give 

love to all "Longwith" (now somewhat scattered).

  Your Hubby
