saw by the paper. Tommy Burns couldn't get a good man to go against him. We have a good Lightweight scrapper here among us 2% Billy Kirkland by name, he has fought all the best boys around California & Nevada. They are looking for recruits here for Siberia but the men aren't over anxious to go. They figured on just having returned men & men under the Military Service Act who have had exemption up till now but the finally put it on orders here that anybody could transfer who wanted too. I guess I will close for now as I haven't any news. Tell the Armstrongs that I just received a letter from them & will answer when I get some fresh news. Sincerely Yours. Norm
