Dear La Verne:-
I guess you know I have left Camp Borden. last week-end. I got a letter from Frances yesterday & she said she was talking to you on the phone that morning. (last sun.). I guess she was sort of upset when I phoned her from Camp & told her I was leaving.
I was so glad to hear from you this morn. I have been looking for a letter from you for so long. & I begin to think you had forgotten your little brother in England. I have written you about three times.
Well I’ll start answering some of your questions. It’s a good thing you ask me things. Or I wouldn’t know what to write.
Well the liking of England is wearing off now. “There is no place like home.” No mater what kind of a dump your home is. It is better than anyplace else.
