Dear Sis

It is time I was dropping you a line to let you know that I am still living. I would write more than I do but I have nothing much to say except that which would be cencored so a card is just as good to let you know that I am still alive and well I have recieved your Photo and several bundles of papers for which I cannot thank you enough especially this last week as it has been so wet, we have just put in an awful wet week wet every day and no place to dry. but to day is a beauty could not wish for better. Eric was here yesterday when I recieved you last letter so I told his what you said about the Photo so I expect he will write you he is looking well but is sick of soldiering and will be glad when it is all over. I am in the hope of seing Russell any day as the canadians are [?]. I do not know of much that you can send me unless it is socks but do not send me more than two pair at once as I have no where to put them. a small close knitt sweater coat not to thick would be a good thin to send and a few of them camptor balls put then in a little sack so I can hang them around my neck. It is no us send us a lot of stuff as it only a bother enough is all we want even that is two much sometimes. If Mr Smith is still in the Hostpital give him my kind regards also any of the rest that you may happen to [?] in Brandon. Now I will close hoping that by the time I write you again that I can say I have seen Russell hoping this will find you well

Your loving Bro
G. H. Redman
