Transcription: Madam, accept my sincere thanks for the parcle you kindly sent me through hand [...] I was not indeed worthy of such kindness as I feel just so small a soldier amongst they many we have presently here. However as I leave Southhampton on Wednesday next to do my little bit in the Dardenells. I hope to fall a few of those savage Turks. I am feeling happy glad to say & the encouragement I got at home and from Mrs and Miss Roberts makes me still happier trusting I take not too much liberty in writing. I shall always remember with the kindest appreciation the kindly welcome I got at Kelston. Yours most obedientl Priv H Loughlin 5 Batt RDF [includes envelope]
