to think we might weaken. No danger of that though I feel sure. Our Govts know we must carry on to a real victory or we loose; & it is certainly better to be killed off here while fighting than to be hung by a Fritz Govenor for having trouble with a Fritz soldier in England or Canada. Our race is not made to submit to a Fritz so a lot of us would have to be killed of so that he might rule us in a Hun way. No Sir we win & win good before we finish. It will be a bit hard to start all over again when we get back but if we are not crouded out by people who have made them selves solid while we have been away we can do it. My best regards to Mrs Tregillus & Mr & Mrs McArthur also Mrs House and please remember me to all old tilicums who enquire of me. Frank Roddie not the least of old tilicums
