periods to travel. You must have had a 

good train journey. Glad you heard from

the Balls & I am rather pleased that they

think we are doing right. I believe it will

be best to carry the thing right through

after all. Yes, you told me about Glatly's 

boy. Real bad luck isn't it? Yes I sleep

real well & get full benefit out of the

rest. It is probably good news only that 

takes a long time to travel so keep cheerful

Lassie. Yes I wore the tunic in the line.

I'll let you know in good time when I

want any new clothes. A tour of days in

the trenches last anything from four to

eight days with the same in support.

Really the softest time is in the front

line only there are of course one or

two disadvantages to get over. Glad you

saw so many of the "family" I wrote

to both Nell & Sills. Harry is wonderful

Glad Kenneth has got over his cough
