My dear Mum,

Thanks for your cable also the one from Dennis, I arrived at Port Albert yesterday and am just settling down to the new life. Will be here for Christmas as the course is now 14 weeks, identical to the last one, only more condensed, and of course the principles of lecturing. I had a very exciting time in New York, visited practically everywhere, was there for a week before returning to Toronto. Had the remainder of my leave at Mrs. Ashtons and had a wonderful time, they are simply swell. At present I am billeted out at a hotel in Goderich with a few of the chaps I have teamed up with, and we will be here until there is enough room for us at camp, the winter is just about here so I can see us snowed in for a few weeks. We are fortunate enough to get a 48 hour pass every two weeks so will utilize this with a trip up to Toronto for this is a wilderness compared with the last station. Hoping your [sic] are all well and most disappointed that I shall be unable to celebrate this Christmas with you, hope to hear from you soon. All my best to Dennis and Bill Love. Reg xxxxxx
