Just a few lines to night to say I'm going up to Aberdeen tomorrow on my six day leave. We pay our own fares there but in three months we get our fares paid. There is a lot of fellows going to Aberdeen. Half of the battalion go tomorrow and the other half when we come back. It is fine weather here just now we have a fine place here and we are so comfortable. He have all the straw beds (mattresses filled with straw) and pillows. We have such a fine quiet place it is just like home. We have our bed room tables and chairs and all conveniences just like a house and all lit up with electric light. Well I think I will close for this time. Hoping you and George are well. I will write when I get up in Scotland and give you all the news.
