Dear Sir

I arrived all safe and sound in Ottawa at 530 p.m. Tuesday night Stayed at Hotel and went to City Hall for position as entrepeter & then went to Chief of Police after Chief of Detectives & also for Chief of Dominion Police at Parliament Buildings but could get nothing from any of them as they wanted somebody that could speak Greek Servian & Turkish and as I could not do that I enlisted for the war as entrepeter & electritian and think I will be all O.K. Now as I am on duty at the recruiting office till Monday next I will go then to my Batt. which is the 77th as intrepeter & then I will receive about $2.50 a day

Yours truly
