Dear Mum,
No 2 arrived to-day, the great day it was too. By the reports of progress so far & the strength at our disposal I think we’re on the way to finishing off this doggoned [sic] war. Sorry to hear you had a letterless [sic] week – hope it doesn’t continue as long as my spell recently. Glad you’ve had a drop of rain at last. Yes I guess Dad’s pretty busy right now. Getting the crop in at the right time, makes all the difference doesn’t it & if the grass is still short the feed it’ll make will be handy shortly. Birriwa still continues to get all the luck it seems.
I just got the cake Vera sent & it’s a a [sic] real cracker. Even better than your last one I think, if that’s possible. I’ve started a letter to them but I doubt if I’ll finish it to-night. It’s the first free night for a week but even so the amount of letters seems too great to cope with in the time.
Cheerio for now. Love to all at Home. Bert XXXX
