No mail this week, but I daresay a letter will come Saturday. We are getting settled down here more or less, but it’s warming up. I had a long letter from Jane, she seems to be enjoying her new job & is happy. I have sent that gold watch home by a man who is sailing shortly, can’t think why I ever brought it out. Hope it arrives safe.
No more now.
Yr loving son
Tell Ben I have a dog-boy, & I have called him Dudley! He quite likes it
A dog-boy was a servant engaged to look after a dog, in this case June.
