9/1/17.

Dearest Father,

Here with the promised tin of “Bully Beef” which I hope will not give you indigestion! Ever so many thanks for all your kind congratulations on the M.C. which came as a big surprise to me, I know Mai, Lena and all the others who have written will not expect a letter as I am left pretty much on the run just now.

I am ever so well with not even a cold. Much love to all,

Willie.

P.S. You will be glad to know, as we are that the “PIG” has been removed (see book) we shall have peace again.
