Dear Mother.

Arrived over here this morning, the place I said I thought we should go to. Awaiting orders now to go by train. Spec that means 5 or 6 days in the blooming thing. Hot, dusty, dirty, but I believe the scenery in some parts is luvly. Very hot here this morning. Just had a shave & hair cut, so sleepy I went to sleep while I was getting my hair cut.
