My Dear Mother & Father
At last a few lines to let you know I’m still alive & kicking. The weather here is horrible & has been for the last few weeks, nothing but rain all the time. Hope Dad is still fit & busy. How is Ethel getting on now dying to see dear Ernie I suppose?What do you think about this phiz of mine, is it better than the other one?  My jaw is still about the same I’m having massage for it. I received 1 alright. I told you last time I wrote. Hope all are keeping well at home & that everything is going A1. Kindest regards to all neighbours & love to Ethel & selves.

Your affect son

P.S. Hope Mrs Paterson is alright now, give her and Mr also fam. my best wishes.
