My Own Darling Wife,

  Must just write a short

love note although I have no

other news. I had a nice long

walk in the moonlight last

night & got to bed somewhere

about 3 am this morning. 

We had breakfast about 9

but I got back into my 

flea bag again & had another

sleep. Really got up & I put 

my boots on at 12:45. Spent 

most of the afternoon lying

in the sun & have just

finished a most excellent

bath. I have put on those

stocking puttees for the first 

time & they are very comfy

indeed.

  I hope you are having as

good weather as we are

if so you will be spending
