Letter to Mother from Scilly Isle

28-1-18  Scilly Isle,

Dear Mother:–

I left London last night at 950, had until 730 A.M, on the thru train, slept part of the time, then I got breakfast, and done a little shopping, and caught the boat. for here a distance of 42 miles, The boat was about 80 ft long and a choppy sea, so you can imagine how sick yours truly soon got, and then I lost a good breakfast of bacon and eggs, And would have lost ten but they weren't there, Any way I went down in to the cabin and lay on a bench about three out of the four hours of the trip.

Mr Deason Mrs Deason were at the dock to meet me, then we road home in a rig about a mile and a half, I with I could explain, this part as it is so you could see it, I till try and send the best cards home that I can get.

Well good night Mother dear

as ever your loving son
