week ends so we have both shared the home news. The copies of "Life" which you have been so good to send too, she has had & they are much appreciated by us both. I was also very glad to get the Colonist with account of the cricket match in, sometime you might send me a copy occasionally, if it is only to read the advertisements! I read Dugald's ad. in this last copy with much interest! Well Mother I must stop now for the present, much love to you & Pa, & chin chin to the others.

Your loving son E. de. Pilkington Gillespie .

P.S. I'm in luck, have just received a large tin of Dudleigh's Dope from the "Good man, posted July 6th just in the nick of time as my first tin was just about done for. This last tin made the trip in pretty good time, didn't it? Will write to the Good man soon in the meantime give him my best thanks for same.
