Dear Mother.

Many thanks for your letter I got from                      here. But only one! any others will be forwarded & I will give you an address next time I write. Off to the front tonight with no one to see me off! Please tell the girls “Mr Martyr”! I am joining a Calvalry regiment, but do not know which yet.

On the back of this is a list of luggage which will arrive some old time. Do let me know where Topher is. No one ever sent me his address. I am writing in the train a few secs before we start. We’ve been here 1½ days but I’ve been so busy.

Love to all
