C/O Capt Mackenzie
Assistant Military Landing Officer
A P O S14 19 May

Dear Mary,
I received your letter dated Thursday today. I expect you heard that I came down here. So you have made a start at the nursing at last. Well I hope you will be successful and I hope the work will not be too much for you. This town is a bit larger than Dingwall you know. You should hear the row here the other night when the three zeppelins came over great [sport illegible]. Drop a note anytime. With love Dodo
