Dear Pater et Mater -

This is a Canadian February day – The usual Feb. thaw in full swing.  We have been having all kinds of snow and frost of late.  The worst of it is that these houses have no means of heating and to go to ones room is like going to a Vault.  The its terrible agony getting into a cold cold bed.  However after once warming the bed by no other means than bodily heat the rest of the night is spent in a more comfortable state.

I received a bunch of papers today.  Saturday Lights and Orillia Packetts.  I notice that you did quite a little bit of advertising at Xmas.  Did it pay do you think.  I think one of the greatest if not the greatest piece of advertising that I have ever seen is that of the Pulman Institute in England.  Les could tell you about it.  Tis really remarkable you know.

I was thinking today that just three years ago I was just going to my cadet course – Do you remember?  I do well.  I was wondering if I would land a job.  By the way what is Ben Mainer [?] and the Major doing now.  They were famous people in those days.  We didn’t know what a good time we were having then – I am sure that Leslie will agree with me at that.

Well as usual I haven’t any news for you – Everything is just the same.  I wonder if we were to go to Ottawa on our return both of you could come down to meet me – T’would be a nice trip for you.

Well so long – home – will write again soon –

Your loving son.

Cecil XXX -
