Dear Mom & Dad,
Is there anything wrong at home, I haven’t got a letter for over a week and I’m getting a bit lonesome so how about a letter or two? I don’t mind being away as long as I get letters but when you don’t even get one in a week, while that’t too much. Some of the guys are getting to think I haven’t got folks at home. I don’t know what to write about if yous don’t answer my letters.
How is Ray getting along, fine I hope so. Please write, even if you just send an envelope with no letter in it.
Lots of love,
[Shannan’s Note – Ray is Gord’s brother]
