Dear Alice, and all at home,
The war has started

Returning men are going up by the thousands and no turning back. They have got into Warsaw and the women are fighting like tigers.
I am very well but I don't work much only at my own clothes. 3 years war if not more. Hoping to hear from you at any time. Give my best wishes to all.
From your father Preston North
Deseronto Canada xxxx Bye bye

North, Preston John
