Dear Spencer

I am writing these few lines to see if I can hear from you. I got your address from Home lately. I am in D Company 6th Batt, we often run into different ones so always have a chance of meeting.

They were all well at Home when they wrote. Hoping this will find you. I have had a good spin so far.

I remain
Your affec cousin
DE Kentish
