Dear Mother-

Just a few lines hoping this finds you all well as this leaves me. I'm out again from the little trip I mentioned in my last letter, and everything's OK. Well Mother, I'm still getting your letters in pretty good time, and I'm always glad to get them, as there's nothing like them. I also had one from aunt Jessie today, written from Rugby, where they were spending some of their holiday. She has been poorly for some time, but I think she is getting over it again, and seems to be enjoying it at Rugby. She tells me that Gramma is paying a visit to Sheffield again. She is surely wonderful at her age, and I guess they like nothing better than to have her with them. I had a letter from Auntie Lily a week ago, and they were all well, and Mark is working again. You'll all be busy at home. Tell Joe I'm looking for his letter, and hoping the crops work out good. How is your garden this year? Getting better all the time, I guess. You seem to have had a busy time with the berries this year. It's too bad there's so many mosquitoes out there, isn't it? Good thing they don't worry here. How is Marjie now? She will be a big girl now, and be keeping house for you. I'll have to write Auntie again soon, so remember me for this time. Well Mother, I'll close now with best love to all, your loving Son,
