Dear Mum,
Collected your first two letters the other day and was very pleased. Heard from Betty that my cable from New York arrived O.K. I got Beryl’s letter – by which I gather that Kirk Beddie is in Canada, not over here, and so I won’t be seeing him awhile. I guess you are all pleased with the wheat yield. Let’s know how the wool fares when its appraised. Meggs seems to have been pretty busy lately & I guess he’ll be ploughing by the time this arrives. Pleased to hear of the new Bull – congrats & best wishes to Charlie & Margaret. The cake of course isn’t here yet but I’m looking forward to it. They don’t have much [deleted] [indecipherable letters] [/deleted] variety in that line here although theres [sic] always plenty of some kind about.
Am getting a bit tired of doing practically nothing here where we are at present; but it was livened up a bit the other day by meeting Terry Cooke & Jeff Holmes – the first time any of us met since arriving. Tell Mrs Barton I’ll write when Ron answers my letter. I guess there’s a lot of people glad Fred’s back at Wagga providing he doesn’t work too hard. Cheerio for the present
Love to all at home. Bert XXXX.
