Dear Sister, [Cora]
Jim is here in Winnipeg. I got the day off and I am up in his room writing this letter. He was up at Wellwood and heard I was sick and came down to see me. He is leaving here in the morning for Wellwood and then he is going on to Regina.
We had our photos taken. I will send you one. I don't think they are very good. But you will know what I look like in a uniform. I go out with him nearly every night since [he] came. We were up through Eatons store this morning.
I was at a social last night, had a pretty good time. I don't go out very much. Have only been out three times after 9:30 in four weeks. Something I never did before. Who does Flossie go with now? Does George still go with Miss Oldfield? You can tell that new school teacher about me. We have all got to grow a moustache. Mine looks like a football team, eleven on each side and so light you can hardly see it.
I have never heard from Andy yet. Have you? How is Misses Scotts, Kathie and Linnie? Tell them I love them. Jim has gone to sleep. He thinks I am foolish to go to the war and that I will never be seen again. But I don't think anything like that. Well, Cora, I must close for now as I have two more letters to write. I have wrote more since I came here than I ever did before. I will close for now.
From your brother,
