We are on the ship and under way. We left Montreal this morning at 6.00[?].
This is only a small and slow boat but it is new. It's a C.P.R. boat. I will try and get a photo of it and enclose it.
We have about 2,000 soldiers on board and a few civilians. We all have the run of the ship. I am in a 2nd class berth so am lucky.
Well I will have to finish now as we are getting near Quebec and they are calling for mail.
Give my love to all the kids and father with love from
Your loving son
