Quebec Oct. 29th

Dear Mother

I am well and all right I am writing for the last time in Quebec for a while I am sitting on a stove with the pad on my knee so dont be surprised at the scribble how are all the folks at home remember me to every body we sail tomorrow for South Africa so the next word you get from me will be off the field there is great activity down here fitting out the men I will write Just as soon as I get over there and get a chance the people in toronto were more than good to me. I have nothing to complain of we have a fine Regiment we had a grand church parade today. I have not seen much of Quebec and what I have seen I do not think but very little of it the streets are narrow and muddy

I have very little news only that I am well and that is the main thing So I will close with love to all hoping to see you in a year

Good bye
