Will try to write you a few lines to let you know I'm still alright I am back in Australia now in a hospital.
I told you a while back that I didn't think my eye was hurt much well that was a mistake. I have but one eye now the left one is out, so when I see you again guess I'll have a glass one in there. And don't [think] that will [be] to long either. I think my army days are just about over.
I got a letter from Pearle awhile back, but I couldn't answer it just then and now I've lost the address...so please tell Tom to get buisy [sic] and write. it won't hurt him.
Well this is all I can think of to write now so will close for this time
please write soon
as ever your
