nice pack of playing cards, me thinks I'll have to correspond there too! I met Mr. Cross and Roger Monteith, they were on the wharf here waiting for me. old C.T. was very friendly and I thanked him again very much for the glasses. Amongst others who were down to say au Revoir in Victoria were Ethel Pitts, May Newcombe and Poor Ruth Jones. Well mother the train is just going to pull out, so I have no time for more, but will write en route. Am awfully glad that Oliphant is with me, he is a very decent chap.

Best love to all Mother and keep cheerful. Your affect. Son Erroll.
