My Dear Jim

         I dare say you will think it is funny to see

that I am still here. I have been on the list to go to England

since Monday last- but no boat has left here since

I mean no hospital ship  ... There is some reason for

not sailing them- I believe they are making some alterations

+ changes as things were not perfectly safe. I dont believe I 

shall leave this for about 5 days now. I am not quite all right

yet my face being still pretty sore but another few days will I'm

sure fix up matters. Then if the boat is not running there is first

an off chance that instead of being sent to Blighty I may  have to

go to some place here in France for change of air They often send

chaps to Nice + the South of France to  recuperate. But I hope I'll

get home  all the same.

          Have you had any news of Christy. I don't suppose he

knows where I am He might you know be within reach of

here + I would like very much to see him. No letters that gen were

sent to me before I came here have reached me yet. So far yours

 ...  the papers + one from the less complete  my list - I am

hoping to get the others. By the way should any letters for

me get home. Keep them till I get ask for them. I gave home

as my address + expect that a letter or  two may get there
