Dear Sister, Received your letter and parcel all OK and haven't had time to answer it cause I have been quarantined for 9 days on account of fellows having spinal meningitis. 8 were taken from our hut. We are going away soon to [censored] but you should worry. I will go this month for sure. So you can expect a letter every month at the least. Well I am feeling better than I ever did. Well England is some rotten place. I have got a new job on. I am going to Aldershot to take a course in range finding and surveying. It's done all by instruments. I have been to the city of London twice. It's some place all right. They are keeping 50% of our pay back now so I expect I shall have some after the war. You ought to see the wounded over here. All kinds of them. Well I have a lot of letters to write tonight and must close wishing I was in Canada. How is Ray?
Your affectionate brother Archie PS I received Ronnie's letter. Will write soon.
