July 1st, 1943
Dear Mom + Dad,
Well mom I’m getting behind in my mail to you but I have no stamps or money so could you send me a bit and if you do could you send it by mail with your letter because the other way I have to go down to Halifax. And I don’t expect to be here very long anyway and a letter would follow me wherever I go.
You tell Marg when that when I come you and Bin and I will go up to the Honey Dew and meet Marg and then we will go out and have the time of our lives. Tell the kids that when I come home I’ll be so happy I’ll treat them to whatever they want.
And about that holiday on the 1st I didn’t know there was one, we are so far back in the woods we don’t hear about anything.
I can’t think of anything more to say except please write soon and send $1.
Lots of love to the best mother in the world
