Dear Folks.

Well here I am again and I am still kicking I received four letters from you last Tuesday one was the blue form and the other three were strait mail. I was glad to here that you got my telegram I sent it on the second of Feb. I think even the telegrams aren't very fast. So you at least got your floor tamp eh. [?] I know the kind for John Kink has one in Saskatoon

I am glad to hear that June is doing so well at school now and thank her very much for the letter and that I am going to write her within the next day or so.

I suppose Gerald is quite a boy by now I guess I will see quite a change in him. I am glad to hear that Leila is much better than she was.

The weather here has been swell and bright but it is still quite chilly at night and the fire feels good when we have a fire. Last night one of the boys got a parcel from home and we had some noodle soup. They come in packages and it only takes 7 min. to make it. He also had some spread easy cheese so we had some cheese on toast it was sure good.

I got the ten Dollars that you sent me and thanks a lot for it for it sure came in handy. I am trying to save enough to by a bicycle for walking over here is the main problem. The $10 was 2 lbs. 4 shillings and 9 pennys.

I have at last got in contact with Earl Wiltsie got a letter from him the other night he is much north of me here in England. He is getting leave in April so I might meet him. Yes I have heard a few Canadian programs here they broadcast the hockey game on wed. That is played in Toronto on Sat then there are other programs also Eddy Cantor Jack Benny I got another letter from Aunt Thurza. My watch you can tell Mc Adams is not up to much for the amount of money it cost. The other day the crystal fell out and it sometimes stops I also have to wind it twice a day.

I don't think there is much fear of me settling down over here for one thing the women arn't up to much and another thing I don't like the place.

I have been flying a little lately and now we have started night flying and boy is it ever cold here at nights it is so damp. I have said what I would like in my other letters so I will not say it in this letter but I sure like to get a parcel for I haven't received the first one yet. I am in a good crew I think they are a good bunch of fellows. Well I guess I will have to close for now.

Say hello to all
