me in wrong & prove it. So if you hear of me getting in to the cells dont belive I was wrong till you hear from me. I know I have done both well & right in a difficult place I have used good judgement & have had to give to much of my thoughts to how to overcome the gangs work. Our Sergent is a fine man but is too easy & I belive is a bit afraid of the gang of course it goes against a non com who has trouble with his men even if N.C is right I am glad to be able to unburden myself of this account of some of my troubles so dont mind too much if it is too much like whyning. I wrote your letter Sat might but did not seal it as P.T. was back at camp & so though I would unburden myself on this sheet. But dont let this comeback to camp via an enemy of myself or the empire.

Yours, feeling better now Ernest Seeley
