Private S Clayton

I just sit down to write a few lines to you in answer to your most kind and welcome letter, and also papers. I am very pleased to hear Uncle Jim was a bit better, tell him if he was over here I would get him more tobacco than he could smoke. I am in the best of health at present and am all right. Tell Grandfather that this week I pulled a ticket off the trusses of hay and I saw where it came from: Mr Warrington’s farm at Offord Station. It did remind me of my old life at Buckden. I am sending the ticket.
