Witley Camp, Oct., 15/16.

Dear friend, -

Have been waiting for a reply to the card I sent you from Camp Borden. I didn't see many of the Grant people the last time I was home an account of not getting out to church. Rachel wanted me to go to our church at Lucain the last Sunday I was home as I went iwth Tressa to hers the second last Sunday [morning stricken out] I was home. I was down to Granton church at night that time, so wasn't out to our own at all that time.

I suppose you have heard all about our trip and what the country is like. I wasn't sick on the way over although some of the boys were quite sick.

We were quarantined in on account of measles but we are having a good time playing cards, etc. Only one case from our hut so far though to take them, so if there aren't any more we will be out in about a week. We can go out once a day for a route march.

II.

Our battalion is going to be broken up. A A Co. is being put with the 134th [?]. and I'm not sure about B. Co. but I think they'll be put with the 116th. C. and D. will probably be put in the 125th, that is where some of our officers are going anyway.

The officers in A. B. and D Co's. are all too old to go to the front and I think that has something to do with our being broken up.

Well this is certainly a beautiful country. The buildings are so quaint and homelike in the country. The roads are excellent, but are somewhat [dang] - and high fences and trees all along the way. Godalming is the nearest place of any size. There are quite a number of stores and residences, but the streets are very narrow and winding.

The little place close by our camp goes by the name of Tin town. We can get anything we want there.
