My Dear Jim

       As our period of resting has

come to an end to day , I thought

perhaps  you would like to be informed

of the fact:

    We had a very enjoyable

afternoon yesterday at our Brigade

Sports. They were very good +

extremely interesting. There was

also some extremely good music

  In fact most people here thought

on yesterday afternoon that this

was a very fine war.

   Your gd so used to the noise

of the guns + the flights of air

craft as to forget all about it.

    I think if they stopped some

night I'd hardly sleep. of course

I only think that - I was
