Dearest Papa, Mama and Sisters
Will write you all a few words to let you know I am well and feeling fine. Hope this will find you all the same. How is every thing there by now.
I don’t know just when I will leave her now, was aiming to leave Wednesday but got put on the Seaman Gard so I don’t guess I will get to leave here before another weak. Have you sold my horse yet. When have you all heard from Rex. I haven’t got a letter from him in a good while. You know I said I was going to send you all some more of my pictures well I haven’t sent them for I went to Napa and didn’t have time to, will send them the first chance I get. I don’t know when I will get a furlow. I am going to try and get one before long. Cody and Ragan is still here Ragan is on the Seaman Gard with me. We are going to try and get out together hoepw e can. Do you know where Hommer is at now. I would like to see him. Has any of the other boys left yet. When Esie Swift went to the Elphar did he get in the Navy? Well I am in a hurry so you see by my writing will do better next time and write more.
Well I must ring off for this time, write soon your loving son,
Alfred N. Green
