The suggestion has been made recently that our boys on the Gallipoli Peninsula do not receive letters addressed to them. Mr. F. W. Powell, in a letter to the Evening Post, says: "I have received several service cards from my son, Wilmot Powell, of the Wellington 6th Mounted, who left Egypt on 8th May, and to-day (Tuesday) I received a letter-card dated 6th June, in which he says he received a budget of letters from New Zealand. He adds that he is quite well, and having the time of his life. Two mails had arrived up to the time he wrote (6th June)."
