Words by William Collier. Music by Isidor Witmark.

Just a few lines to you, daddy, to let you know I'm well;
My kindest love to all at home, and a kiss for baby Nell;
I've much good news to write you, daddy, 'twill make your heart ho glad,
But even words cannot express how much I miss you, dad.

This was the message from a foreign land,
These were the words that pleased the dear old man.
Sitting by the fireside with heart so glad,
Heading from his darling boy a letter to his dad.

It's been some time since I wrote you, but have no fear for me,
I'm writing now from my own home, and our baby's on my knee.
Tell mother dear it's her own image-his prattle makes us glad;
If I could only see you all, I'd not ask more, dear dad. -Chorus.
