2/5/17

My own Darling wife,

  Think it would be as well to

just write some of this letter before

dinner. We are still having most

glorious weather and it is a real

treat to be out of doors in the

sunshine. Last night I was able to

enjoy a night in bed but of course

did not get my clothes. To-night

my men, or rather part of them

will be out all night but I shall

not go with them. I received

a parcel from you last night

containing lots of good + useful

things. We enjoyed part of the

cake at tea to-day but the

other things are waiting for the morrow.

Nearly all my officers are away for

one cause + another. Johnson's toe has

not recovered since he dropped

the brick on it. Hall is with B
