of ever getting back ourselves. I was glad that your Quartz claims looked so good and hope you all pull out with a good big stake. I am sending you a Post Card of myself they are not much good, I had them taken alongside an old brick wall and the weather condition were not very good. You will notice by my shoes that it is not very dry underfoot here. Well Fred give my best wishes to Mrs Tregillus and everyone else. Is Charlie Cattlett still in Barkerville if so give him my best regards. I think that this will be about all I have time to write tonight so wishing you all a Merry Christmas & Happy New Year

I will ring off so, so long from your Friend & Well Wishes
