My Own Darling Wife,

  Many thanks for the parcel

which arrived this afternoon. All the

contents will be very useful. Tell

Kenneth Daddy sends him a big kiss

for his share in the parcel. I received

a parcel by the same post from 

Fortman & Mason - don't know from 

whom it comes but I expect it

is probably from Wendel or Johnson. Did

I tell you how the latter had got to

England. It is somewhat of a change

being here. Just before we came I

used to go to bed at 4:30 am without

taking off my clothes + now I get up

at 6 am + have to get properly dressed.

It seems very early in the morning +

makes the days long. Still its all

in the days work + I am going to

give the first parade a miss

except for one morning a week

in future. The weather is still grand
