Dear Mother, Just a line hoping you are all quite well. I am getting on famous and hope to be able to write myself next. Please remember me to everybody and do not worry as I am quite alright. Ask Ethel if she will send me a little money as a loan, about a pound by International Money Order from the Post Office. Letter following.
