a washing day so I shall have some

clean things to go on with. The sausages

were very good + came in useful for

breakfast when there was no issue of

Bacon. With moving yesterday Hall + I

lost our dinner but we fared very well

on that most excellent Veal+ Ham. Pâte

you send. The two cakes were A1 + the

butter a great treat. The socks were

just what I wanted. The kettle has

graces our table (though the salt

you sent was all spilled) The note

paper + envelopes just came in time - (This

is a borrowed pad). All the other things

were just as good + just as useful.

       Hall + I share a dug out, which

is most comfy. We have two beds (wire)

+ have our valises + all fit + for

two days the weather has been fine

+ warm during the day but chilly at

night: what more could one
