1st June 18 Canadian Machine Gun Depot Seaford SX

My dear Mother

I have very little news to give you this week, but even though it's just a line I daresay you will be glad to hear from me, as mails take so long to come & go nowadays. I seem to have written more letters than I have received but we have had no Can. mail in for a long time. I hope it hasn't been sunk. Have only had one mail since I left (in which were 2 letters from you & 1 from Father) am in hopes I may draw something when next mail comes in. Well here we are into June & we are having really beautiful summer weather, hope you are having the same in Victoria. What's doing? are you making any plans for a change, you ought to go down & help [illegible] with his crops for a bit pretty nice time of year in the country now. Well I finished a short topographical course last week, did all right I think, it was quite interesting
