Artifact 1940-06-21 – Letter to Mrs. Elton Newman
Transcription of Artifact Content
Camp Borden, Ont.
I received your letter the other
day & also the girls. They sure did swell in writing them too. Thanks a lot
for the box Frances. It sure was good. We just got it finished in the middle of
the week, when Johnny Burn’s wife sent him a box. He & Bob sleep with Glen
Piper & I. The four of us in our tent.
I got a letter from Glaydys
Gladys & Wilbur to-day & also one from La Verne. I sure was glad to
hear from her. She said she was talking to you before she wrote. And that you
expected coming up here this weekend. I hope you do. I’m sure counting on it.
La Verne said if I came to Cottam, to let her know & they she would
come over & see me.
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.
