My Dearest Sister. A line in answer to your welcome letter dated apr. 29th, hoping you are all in real good health, as it leaves me champion just at present. I am very pleased to hear mother is a lot better, tell her she must not worry herself as I am quite alright. I will try and get a photo taken and send you one. I should like one of Mother as I lost the other when I was captured. Best Love to all from Your Loving Brother Billy xxxx"
