German East Africa
September 25 1916.
Another week has flown by and this is the second day of another one. When I think about the date here I imagine your letters from me take practically six or seven weeks I will have to write your Christmas letter in a month or five weeks.
I can scarcely credit that two years will soon have flown since I made my departure from the West. It is now over twenty months.
We have not had any mail this week and I dont suppose we will have till the first week in Oct. The last two mails were very close together but three weeks should be the average time between English mail.
I am sending a snap of a few of us down here, it is the only one I have of me at present. I am quite well Mother dear so dont worry. Give my regards to the folks around the old burg and lots of love to yourself and the rest of the family
