My Dear Mother & Father,
Received your letters & card this morning, pleased to hear everything is A1. That piece that came out of my jaw is a part of the jaw not lead. I got another small splinter out yesterday & there is another piece working out now. My mouth will not be opened for a fortnight or so yet. The leg is getting on fine but I don’t want it to get well too soon. Have had some fine weather here lately & I think today is going to be a scorcher. Kind regards to all neighbours & love to all.
