Dear Dad Mother Bro and Sis,
So here I am again feeling just fine and sure hope you are all in the very best of health. Well I really meant to write yesterday but I was on Duty and couldn't so that is why Sat afternoon we went to a town and took in another show and had supper and walked around a little and then came back home or I should say come back to bed. It think that, that sounds better, eh? Well I'm always hoping to get some mail but none as yet. I guess there's a mess up somewhere. Oh! It will come through. Well Dad, how are you feeling and are you working hard now or is it still quite?
Whatever you do Dad take good care of yourself. Mother, I suppose you are still busy fixing up the new house, eh? Don't go at it to hard Mum take good care of yourself. Well Blanche, how are you? How's Paul?? I sure hope you are still doing well and not being bothered with a couple of guys, ha ha. We sure got under your skin, eh? Say Hello to Phyllis for me and tell her to be good and don't forget to do that yourself, ha ha!
