Dear Mother and Father,

Just a line in answer of your kind and loveing letter which I was please to have and glad you are keeping alright as I am alright up to the present.

I see you have sent the gloves but I havent got them yet but will let you no when I get them.

I hope to see [you] sometime now before Christmas if I have luck.

The weather has been awful lately. Until this last couple of days it has been alright.

I always get all your letters but there is a delay sometimes. You can give my love to Grandmother.

It is a job to no what to put in to fill it up.

From your son,

Arthur

I don't no when I will be comeing home. Sometime between now and Christmas if I have luck. If I do come I hope to have a good time. 

We have had some rotten weather. It has been snowing so you no it hasn't been very swetting [sweating] although it is a bit bright today.

You can give my love to Florence and I will see she doesn't get anymore kisses than you this time.

From your brother
