But in the sergents orderlie room where I often go & have been told to use freely (but dont) they make great from of S.M. but of course what I hear there I am supposed to keep to my self so dont bet it come back from Kelleys red P.C. as no doubt some here would like to knock. Mr Minisci is getting on well but is unfortunately in with the U.S. gang & though not in my section I spoke very strongly to the Sergent about the Jobs they were putting up on him M. Dwyer is too much a trained soldier to see all that goes on in his section where J.Y. gets the worst of it but I think the talk I had today with the sergent will help J.Y. If not I go higher up. He is here to fight the enemy & not because he got too drunk at Stanley or was ordered out of Juno as is the case with our troulbesome 4. I expect I have left out much I wanted to say but my head is rather in a wirl with so much new stuff going into it & my letter is most likely rather rambling But there is not as much B.S. in it as one J. Murphy read to me which he had written to marshal the [illegible] day

With respects to Mrs Tregillus & remembances to all my friends

I am Yours Truly Ernest Seeley
