Dear Mother & All
Just recieved your letter to-day & also a parcel from the I.O.D.E. containing sox, & I wish you would thank them for me as I don't know who to write to.
You sure must be having some time with the crowd you have at home. I have met Lawrence McNicol twice of late & he seems to be getting on o.k. A fellow, whose name is Holston saw Cliff Hallett, who is in the P.P.C.L.I's & he says he was looking the same as usual. I tried to find Cliff at his billet but nobody seemed to know him.
We are out of the line for a short term to get cleaned up & rested.
The weather is keeping fair this last few days. I am writing to the two addresses you gave me as soon as possible.
Hoping this finds all in the best of health.
Your Loving Son
P.S. If you having time, send a few eats as I have a big gap & can't get it filled.
