Dear Gug:

How is everything? I am sitting up in bed with the typewriter on the back of a chair in front of me. Doc Stead says he thinks that I will be able to get back on the job the first of next week but will have to go rather easy. My diet consists of Oxo, Eggnogg, and milk; I guess he thinks I am getting too fat. Thank Cpl. Maskell for his boots , sorry I couldn't take them back myself. Say, I should have given you that hat badge of Cpl. Springs, Isuppose I had better keep it till next week. Of all the rotten type writers I ever struck this is the worst. It is a new model "Empire" "Made in Canada". If you can collect any of my pay, give Pte. Hart the dollar I owe him and reimburse yourself for the express on that valise, the dollar for Brown/scombe etc. and if therehappens to be any left you might send the same to me. Well Gug behave yourself stay in at nights, study your Infantry Training, no++xx++ for any of your young lady friends , in a word follow my example in all things. They say I have to have some more Oxo now and go to sleep so Au Reservoir

Votre comarade

G. B. Chisholm.
