this letter will be kind of late but that is no fault of mine. blame the old war as usual to the cause. we are in our old city taking a rest away from the seat of our labors at present. I’m sending mother a card of ours we are only allowed a few. I would like to have had more to send but couldn’t. I intend to remember you all if I can this Xmas but that may not be possible now darlings all I leave you Goodnight –God bless & keep you all safe is ever the wish of your ever loving boy
