Dear Marjorie
  I received your letter today Monday and am pleased to hear that you are still looking after your health and looks by going to see the dentist. We here are seeing a lot of changes, a big draft is away tomorrow and another one is due to leave on Saturday. I may be lucky and miss it because at present I am on light duties owing to me having injections and I shall be attending hospital for some weeks to come. So I may be able to ride the drafts for a little time but I am afraid that the drafts will catch up with me in time. If I can stay in England until the youngster is born I shall be happy. Darling I am mentioning this so that if I do come home on embarkation leave it will not come as too big a shock to you but please darling do not worry, every thing will turn out O.K. Darling its terrible here there is hardly any body here, its pitiful to see all ones pals going but still darling that's the way of the army. Will close now,
Cherrio,
Sydney.

P.S. the draft went away today darling after a hectic night of drinking. My best pal Ted Wyatt went, he half expected me to go with him, but under the circumstances darling I could not go, I felt an awful cad in not trying to get on the draft, but darling you and I come first so I never made any attempt to get on the draft. I guess if I had spoken to the doctor he would have over looked my vein trouble so as to let me go with a pal, but darling as you come first in my life I just sat tight. I guess I shall meet Ted in my travels so I must leave it like that,
Cherrio darling,
Sydney.
