Text at bottom 'Sara cosi? Sera - t - il comme ca? The end of it all'. On the reverse is a handwritten message addressed to his sister Edith, Mrs J.C. Reid, Balaklava, South Australia. 'France, 13th Aug 16. My Dear Sister, I was delighted to receive your letter of the 26th June, and to know that you are all so well at home. I am enjoying the best of health and getting on fine. Things in general are rolling merrily along with us. I was very sorry to hear of Mr. Partridge's death. Remember me to Dad, and tell him that I am keeping well. Give my love to all. From your Loving Brother Phill.'
