Dear Mother

It is Sunday today so I'm sitting down to write a line or two to let you know how I'm getting along. I have been getting quite a bit of mail lately. I had one from you and slo one from dad last week and was glad to hear that you were feeling O.K. Your trip to the coast must have done you good. It would be fine to visit all our old friends again I;m sure you all right now going to work at 8 o'clock. It will be better than last winter turning out in the cold. I guess he still has the same partner. Does he ever hear from Milton since he left.

Our Charlie must be some class these days. If he says fruit picking very long he'll make a fortune. I guess he is just as full of business as ever. I have had several letters from Hannah lately one had a note from Leen in it She must be having a fine time. I also had a letter from Mag. She says she is improving all the time. It sure would be great if she could get well again. Shindy sent me some pictures he took while on his trip to the coast. The were swell. He had all the scenes between Kamloops & Vancouver and a lot around the park etc. Everyone of them were first class A few days later I got another letter from him with a post card picture of himself and four [?] I knew it was a good picture of them all.

We are still resting in the same place and are taking things pretty easy. The is at very much doing. I'm getting fat I think. I'd like to get weighed to see how much Ive gained. Well Mother I'll close for the present with love to all.

Your loving Son
