most of your time out of

doors. Ta for your letter of the

29th received last night.

We might pot the partridge

only it would be dangerous

for some of the troop with a

service rifle & besides it is 

strictly against GH2 orders.

Hope you had a good time at the

theatre. Hope the Balls will

want to stay, but 2 wks each

days will prove rather strenuous 

work. You ought to have

one afternoon off a week surely.

Glad Kenneth is well & still

going strong. The snaps were

rather dark but they look

very good. I am looking forward

to getting a finished copy

in a day or two. Kenneth

looks quite a big fellow & 

very sturdy. Doesn't appear

as if there were any shortage

right side

of food for him. He has got

some hair too hasn't he? He 

sits his mount very well

but lifts his hands a bit

too high - won't get a good

touch on the reins. I can

see very much of you in 

the snap - 'cause your face 

has gone dark.

  I love you Marion & I

do want you to be happy

& comfy until I can come

& look after you again.

  All my thoughts come 

to you. Tell Kenneth that

I send him lots of love & kisses

May all happiness wait 

upon you Beloved. Heaps

of kisses a big hug & all

my love

Your own Husband
