it is becoming to be rather chilly on a night

time now. I think it is best to tell you

we are of to make a big Charge this

next month about the 10/th of Sept

our Regiment and a lot more i hope i

have the luck to get safely through

again, so if you do not happen to hear

from me you will know that there

is something the matter. However i

shall write you again before then

I hope we get them well on the

move this time and get them on

the run and kill them by hundreds

so that we shall be able to make

them give in before the Winter sets

on. They have not heard anything of

Ernest yet at Goole have you heard

anything yet. I wish it was all

over as we are dead tired of it

all but we shall have to stick to

it untill we completly crush him.

It makes one wonder though if he will

get safely through to see home again when

he sees a lot of his pals get killed every
