We are encamped at Valcariet with ten thousand others. We have a soup kitchen, engine, blankets, rubber sheets and plenty of good water. It is a lovely country, well wooded with large round hills all round us, a river near. We are in the French country in the Paroisse de S. Gabrielle de Valcartier et Lorette. The peasants are square face French Canadians. We are 13 in a round tent and could hold more perhaps. I have a bowl and food in my haversack. We are 14 miles from Quebec. Send mail to Valcartier Camp, Signal Corps Q.O.R. Jack Diamond is in the same line of tents as I am. I will soon be tackling first class soup, potatoes, and beef.
Your loving Hugh.

Just before lights out. There is a sing song going round a big camp fire. They are singing all the old hymns and songs. The Aura Borealis is right across the sky with big white streaks like a ribbon curtain. There goes the firs frost Good night. Reveille at five thirty.
