but I have had no previous opportunity

of sending them. I had quite a

nice little place there.

      I do not understand your getting

bills which were paid on my behalf.

However, it was probably sent in

error. Pay it, if you please, if the

amount is small; of not, advise me

of the sum and I shall see to it.

I gave Dillard about  ... 3 the last

time that I saw him. Ida was a

very good fellow and I am sorry

to hear about him.

   You say that you ordered food

from Holland for me. Up to the

present nothing has arrived. The

same is true of the tobacco.

Please write to Players about it,

if necessary repeat the order.

Do not send eggs. Many thanks

for underclothing, which I got

the other day. I wish you would

send me a bill for these sums which

you spend on my behalf. By the

way did Lil get her birthday

gift? The pipe  did not arrive

please send another. Please stop

send  tea,  sugar and milk for 4

weeks.

  To sat the least of it, my

writing is execrable; but this is

a very obvious remark. I have

scarcely used a pen during the

past three years, so we are not

accustomed to each other. In many

camps prisoners of war are not

permitted to use pen and ink. Here,

however, one may. I hope that
you will like and be able to 

read my maiden effort.

      We all appreciate the walks

outside of the camp. They last

about two hours and are over
