extremely pleased a day or two ago

to get my first litter from Christy-

   I know where he is roughly he

is nearly 40 miles away from this

I wrote to him by return + we will

do our best to meet. He likes his

job well + I must say as regards

living he is a good deal better off

than I am. But that is only a

small point He says he gets

letters from home all right. Hang it

all I have not got one for years now

though I got a couple of Pbs + 3 or 4

lots of papers from Maya Walsh.

     I dont expect I'll be able to work

again for a few days as we march

bright for the line.

    Oh yes we have a Catholic Chaplain

in this battalion, which is a great

thing. we have confessions, + Mass +

Benediction. etc etc + always before
