& read all the news. Some was new

to us but some was very old. Still

the push would come as a pleasant

tonic after the papers of the first 

three days of the month. We don't know

how things are going all over but

we think there are many things that

the Boche can't classify under the

term "strategical retreat."

  Give my love to all at the Cottage Darling.

I am all yours & love you with all 

my life. I wish it had been possible

to have stayed with you but my duty

to you & Kenneth sent me here to do

my best. How lovely it will be when we

are all together again Sweetheart

mine, and whether the days be 

spent at the Lakes, Sandsend or

anywhere we'll enjoy every minute

of them. What a lot of lost time

there is to make up. Bye Bye

my Beloved. May happy memories
