Hello Mr Dorsey.
Am sorry I haven't wrote you sooner but have been pretty busy. Can't write very much now although I guess I can tell you we are somewhere at sea and it is pretty rough I have been lucky I haven't been seasick yet although a lot of the guys have. Well Mr Dorsey how are things at home? have any more of the men went into service? hope everyone is O.K. and has good work. Tell everyone at the mill hello for me and I will try to write them soon. Well guess I will close now so be good and answer soon.
