Dear Sister and Brother

Received your card and was pleased to here from you. Well by now that winter supply will come in O.K. Did not receive your parcel or papers up to this date, but they may be coming soon. In Mother's letter I see that I am an Uncle. That's Fine.

I wonder what you will name your Daughter. I suppose you are well by now and in fine Health again. If you get to Dunnville I suppose you read my letters I send Home. I just wrote to Mother and Dewey, Aunt Nellie & "Ethel, she says she sent me a parcel. Will you get one of my pictures and give it to her. I have not the time over here to get it taken."

I have not received your parcel up to date haven't received any parcels yet at all.

I wrote a week ago and most of the news was in that I guess. The weather was fine to-day - 55 degrees F. Heat so that is warmer than in Canada. I was at the ranges shooting today and had a five mile route march to get to the ranges. I am still in England, but don't know when I will be over in France. I will thank you for the parcel after I get it. There is a lot of the boys the parcels are the way somewhere.

Best Wishes

From Arthur
