Piper is okay. Only we still nagg the devil out of him The rest of the boys are the same. Everybody seems to have colds, but otherwise they’re alright.

Thanks a million for the pictures Sis. I was sure pleased to get them. I was sick in bed when I received your letter on Tuesday & I haven’t written any letters all week until to-nite

Jim Tweedale is writing to his wife & I don’t know if which we are doing the most of writing or fooling. But I guess I’d better get buzy cuz its nearly bed time

I am sending a picture that was in the Star. I remember when it happen just outside of Aldershot here. So I thought I’d send it to you

That is a school teacher pushing that truck (boxcar) Only they’re one tenth the size of ours.
