My Dear Sister Ona

I received your letters of May 7th, 17th and 31st lately, and was glad to hear from you.

I also got a letter from Orrin, Dewey, and Uncle Sol to-night. Aunt Nellie sent me a parcel on the 22nd of May. I have not got it yet, but am looking for it any day now.

The lice killer you sent me did the job all right I had about 500 of them and can only find a few now. One tin a month will b e enough to send out to me.


I got the dollar you sent me and they pass all right over here in the Y.M.C.A
Thanks for the same.

My address is Pte. A.C. Smith
No. 739465 "C" Company
19th Battalian Canadian B.E.F France

I am with the Battalion now and in "C" Company. I saw A Calbeck to-day. He is in the Rest Hospital for a couple of weeks. The work I done, when I was in the working party was carrying ammunition and building dug-outs and other work

I see you are back on the Farm now. Has Levi many crops in this season? Hope this letter finds you all well as it leaves well.

How is Margaret these days
