My own darling wife,                                                                                                         

  I did not write yesterday

as there was no chance of getting a

letter away. I received your cake &

mince pies safely. Ta very much. The

pies have gone but the cake is still

intact as we had so many on the

go, all having received parcels. However

there are strong indications that it

will come in most useful today.

  The weather has been much better the

last few days and the land is drying

well. We are having a very interesting

time at present, perhaps I'll be able

to tell you about it when next we

meet. The days & nights pass away

in their turn but there is nothing to

mark the days. I did not know

yesterday was Sunday until late in

the day. We have rested for seven

days - that is from duty in the front

    The weather has been much better the last few days and the land is drying well. We are having a very interesting time at present, perhaps I will be able to tell you about it when next me meet. The days might pass away in their turn but there is nothing to mark the days. I did not know yesterday was Sunday until late in the day. We have rested for severn days-that is from duty in the front.
