ALL FAIRLY WELL AND CHEERFUL

But Have A Weatherbeaten Appearance

Private Rowland Cowper, 11th Border, in a letter dated January 29th says:

Dear Sir,

Having had the pleasure of receiving a parcel of “Star” cigarettes, tobacco and matches, presumably through the instigation of the “Wheat Sheaf” and also by the “Miners Arms” customers. I would be greatly obliged, if, through the medium of your paper, you can find room to thank them on my behalf for their kindness. The smokes were greatly appreciated by some of my comrades and myself, and I can assure you we are truly grateful. I often notice letters in your paper from some of our boys, so I will not weary you any more with our experiences, suffice it to say that with the exception of a few casualties we are all fairly well and cheerful under the circumstances, and going strong although, I daresay, by now we have a somewhat weatherbeaten experience. However, it is the fortune of war, and I hope it will not be long before the terrible conflict is brought to a successful conclusion.
