Dearest Mother & Dad.
Hello, once again Folks, well how are you all getting along I hope the best & the same for your health, Well I received your letter today & they sure all welcomed. I received over fifteen letters last week & eight so far this, so don't you think that's really getting the mail. I received a swell letter from Mr. Baragar of Supertest, asking me what kind of smokes I liked, they are going to send us 250 smokes a month & 500 for the month of Dec, so don't you think that's swell of Superfest.
Here isn't very much these days, only it's getting close to Christmas & I'm very much afraid I won't be back to write everyone at the time but I don't think it will be long after as this war will soon be over now, the Russians are sure rushing these days & will be in Poland long before you get this letter. I [?] the pup is a nice looking one can you take a picture of him & send me a snap, & any other snaps you have as I like to put them in my album & look at them when I get homesick mood, which is plenty often, I haven't wrote to Colin & [?] for about a week now but you know when I get through work at night [?] is usually about 9:30 I get plenty tired & haven't much heart to write letters, but I guess I will write to them tomorrow or else they will be worried. I received an Air letter from Mary today and it came across in five days don't you think that is fast I haven't heard from Bole for some time now but I think he is back in England again. As some of the fellows are, I hope we meet each other & when going back to Canada will be able to travel on the same boat, he sure is one swell fellow, there is no other chum like [?]. So [?] gave [?] the brush off, "ah." But I told her she would have to, as he is a brush man, wild & wooly, Well [?] know as I wrote the other day there isn't much to tell you, but will write as often as possible. So will say Bye for now, Your Ever Loving Son
