Shelburne, Nova Scotia.
Dear Ma, Pa and Ruth,
The weather has been fine here today but it rained pretty heavy last night. I received the newspapers today. It sure is swell getting them. I didn’t get a letter today. I guess it will get here tomorrow. I received a letter from Art today from Toronto. He says he is going up to Midlands again so I will write a letter to him there. The other two fellows are going with him. I hope your leg is getting better Pa.
The fellows here seem to be getting their leave when it comes due. I am glad to hear that you got the money order O.K. Last month seemed to go pretty fast. How is the weather in Vancouver these days? Did Art see Alfred Johnson on his leave? The apples you sent sure are swell. I have eaten quite a few already. The weren’t as ripe as the last bunch as I got them pretty quick. I am O.K. I hope Ma, Pa and Ruth that you are all O.K. Well that is about all for today. I will write again tomorrow.
Love to all,
