My Dearest little Agnes,

                                          I am afraid that

you all at home will very soon be

calling me the black sheep of the

family if I keep on neglecting you

as I have been doing very much

longer. But really none of you can

be half so disgusted with me as

I am with myself. God knows it

is not for the want of love for you

all that I have not written more

often. I am a 'rotten' correspondent

& procrastination is the only cause

of my not writing home. Every day

for the past four weeks I have

been going to write home, but

every time I put it off till the next

day till the arrival of your letter

showed me my own bad he behavour
