My dear Mother,
I find I left my “Officers Advance Book” at home, without which I am unable to get any money. It is a small buff coloured book, exactly similar to a cheque book only smaller both in length & breadth. It is probably in a drawer in my room or in my bureau. Would someone mind hunting it out & sending it to me.
[Illegible] Dane turned up to see me day. He used to be in the office with me. He has a 60 pr gun here.
