Dear Grandma & Grandpa,

Many thanks for your card and letter which arrived on the 6th.

I am enjoying myself out here and the Rockies did look good with the sun and mist on them. I was very pleased to hear about Pat’s successes. They cheered me up and made me myself again. I’m sorry to here [sic] Grandpa isn’t too good on his old “props”. The heat and standing here aren’t too good on our feet. I had a fortnights leave a bit back and wished I was home and I could have gone to see Mrs. Baker for a day or two.

I wish you’d go and cheer Ma, Pa, Pat and June, up a bit when you go out for a run they are a bit like me “Down in the Dumps” still I should make an Observer, if not a Navigator or Bombadeir [sic].

Love & kisses,

Keith.
