TO Miss E C Nelson

SS Marama   Wellington.

Good luck to you, have a happy time & come back a better woman!!!

No games behind the funnel on a pitch dark night after 10.30. Don’t marry a Yankee!! Don’t worry Uncle Jack’s head off!!

Pat me on the back for my economical consistency in sending you a 2/ telegram instead of 2/6!! Good bye old girl with continued love from the “Old Man”.

W Nelson.
