Dear Isabel,
When I arrived here a few days ago I sent you and Mother a cablegram each. Please let me know either in letters or by airgraph when you receive each airgraph. I shall try to send some more but they will not interfere with the letter numbering. This is a grand place and I am thoroughly enjoying myself – plenty of marvellous food and comfortable brick huts. Jack, Clem, and I have managed to keep together so we are happy about that. The 3 of us have a pass for this week end so we are going to the address of Cousin Bill which you gave me, this being 36 miles to the south of here. I shall write to him and perhaps see him later as we shall have more similar passes. J. Prentice must be somewhere in this camp and I hope to trace him. We are not doing any flying here but effect to do so soon in accordance with the [deleted] [/deleted] I sent in my 3RD letter, but you should use this address now. I am looking forward to you first letters and you are in my thoughts as much as ever. Regards to the family especially your Mother hoping she continues to progress.
Yours, Andy.
