My Own Darling Wife,

             Sorry I had to finish letter in a

hurry, but will now try to write at

greater length. Letters went about two hours

earlier than I expected - but then it seems to be

always the unexpected that happens out

here. I was very pleased to receive letter

and parcel safely tonight. I am glad to

hear that Kenneth was getting better again

+ I sincerely trust that he will soon

be really fit + able to get about even

though the weather is not too fine. It is

really good to receive letters + I do

enjoy reading all about what you

are doing - though I am afraid I do

not always answer what you put in

the letters. Most of my letters are, in this

great game, written under difficulties

+ I rely on my memory for answering

letters received several days earlier. At

present  12.40 am 8/4/17  I am writing
