My Own Darling Wife,

               Ta for you letter received this

morning. So glad to hear that Kenneth's

cold was so much better. I hope that

he will go strong now + not catch

another. You must have had some

cold weather. We are getting it pretty

cold here, with a fair amount of snow.

Still we get used to the weather + it

amuses us to grouse at it. We spent

most of last night outside - but

fortunately we finished our job + returned

to rest about 4 am. The night before

we went out to dig + last night

we had a stunt which was quite

successful so as soon as we were

relieved we left the cold + the snow.

I didn't notice how cold it was

at first but the last hour of waiting

was as bad as I wanted. I had

telephoned back as soon as I knew

it was possible for us to get back
