Dear Mrs Johns
I received the parcel that you sent me. And it is needless for me to say how much I appreciate it. I could not help thinking of the good times that I have had at your place. Especially when I eat that muffin. For I can well remember how I liked to drop in when you had a pan of them just out of the oven. I used to do justice to them. I went down to Earl about two weeks ago and we had a little chat. He came to see me to-day. He is fine and looks none the worse for his experience. I tell you I miss Earl. It was hard to say good-bye. But I think that we will be able to get to-gether again soon. I wrote to George when were in Eng. did he get it. Well Mrs Johns it know doubt seems hard to you's to have us over here. But I know that we would rather be here and do our bit & take what ever comes. than have anybody through it up to our parents that we were afraid to (do) our duty. For what is worth living for is worth fighting for. I hear that there is great peace talk over in Canada. But it is not over yet. I don't think. My address is Pte Jackson Woods # 654747 B.E.F. 3rd Entrenching Batt. France. Well, I must close for this time. Thanking you for your kindness to me. And hope that you will drop me a line once in while

I Remain
Your friend
