  Be back next week and If short of any
  rashons [rations?] send  to the
  station for them.

  working for. He was suddenly called home
  to Wagga While I was away in another
  field in paddock as they say here got
  and left the above message for me while

  Please write immediately you get this,
  and let me know how things are going on.
  If you would like to come out  here
  I'll be able to send for you myself by
  that time, and if not I will send you
  some money - you must not talk of going
  into the poor house while I have a shilling.
