Dear Mother,

I was very pleased to get your letter to-day and Evelyns card a few days ago. I am so pleased to hear things are looking up and that you have such a nice house. I got a letter from Mary yesterday half a dozen lines it was not worth answering, but I suppose I will have to. I will send you the letter next time I get a green envelope, we should have them to-day but they must not be in yet or something. So when we get them I will try to write a nice long letter. Hilda wrote me and she said she lost your add. and asked me to send it, they are in Qualicum Beach now. Queenie sent me a box of all kinds of things to eat, and I never got it, someone in the post office did I suppose. But dont let that stop you if you want to send me anything anytime, for it is only once in a while they go astray. Well this will have to be an exceedingly short letter, I wish I was spending this Christmas with you, well perhaps I will the next. I might even come up to you when you are in Alaska again. Although Bulgaria coming in might make it a little longer. Well the longer it is, the more fiz I will have when it is over. After we have been out here six months, I think we get a few days leave, so I have something to look forward to. Dick Cockburn has joined the 91st Highlanders from Canada, so I am keeping an eye open for him. Bert has not written for a while now so I don’t know what is doing up there. But I suppose he will write soon. So as I have nothing more to say I will close now and hope to get another letter soon I will write you in a few days when I get my green envelope. It is Sunday to-day, we went to church this morning and have had an easy day since. Give my love to Aunty and Uncle, Father and Eve. And also my best to yourself.

Ever Your Affectionate Son.
