Dear Sister, Just a line hoping this will find you all in real good health, as it leaves me champion just at the moment. The weather is keeping fine I am pleased to say.

Give my love to Mother and everyone I know. A kiss for the children xxx and accept the same yourself. Your Loving Brother Billy."
