Dear Mum,
Well I haven’t written my sea-mail letter yet, so I reckoned I’d better keep ‘em rolling just the same.
My long unlucky spell as letters go was broken to-day by two from you & [deleted] Berl [/deleted] Beryl – both this months – and a letter from George & Vera. Previous to that I’d been about three weeks without word from your or Betty but I guess they’ll be coming along O.K. from now on. I believe Vera is sending me a cake. When all these cakes & biscuits that have been sent arrive the fellers will really go to town won’t they. You remember me speaking of Rod Brownlee who was sick at Coota Xmas before last. (I got his coat at Parkes). He was laid up in America for a couple of weeks & as soon as he got to A.F.U. here went down again for a couple of weeks; but got his first cake in hospital so he reckons it was worth it. Sorry to hear that the weather has been so dry. They should export some of it from here.
Cheerio for now. Love to all at home Bert XXXX
