1 Dear Turnips,
3 So glad of your letter, but picture of little son has not come yet.
4Did Joyce get my note thanking her for her letter?
6 Do you know that Oliver is engaged? We got a note the other day saying
7"Edna Fincham has promised to be my wife." We were astonished. Ursie
8who knows her writes she’s a very fine girl. Do you know her? I
9wonder if he will get married at once before he goes back to
10Mesopotamia? Or if he will come here to fight in France or perhaps
11bring her with him. I hope theyll be married soon. Do all come & see
12me when you come to Town.
14 Love to you all unreadable
15 O Schreiner
