the "one chance extra." Probably 

my arms & chest will lose their

tan again then. We had a 

thunderstorm this afternoon with a

tremendous rain storm. Almost

a quarter of an inch of rain fell inside

an hour so there is plenty of water

about now. The shell holes are half 

full & I guess the forward trenches 

"hold a sup" for some of ours

had over a foot of water in them.

Probably they will be drained out

before we get up to-night. This

seems to have developed into quite a

long talk but I must stop now.

Tell Kenneth Daddy sends kisses &

lots of love. All my thoughts 

are with you my own. Give

my love to Maud & John & tell

them I will try to write occasionally
