Sorry he bumped but glad he bears

up like a soldiers son. No there

doesn't seem to be much news in

the papers but of course it is bound

to be quiet in the line after a push

for there are a thousand and one things

to do. Roads to make - thousands of

tons of stones &c. to move to say nothing

of practically every man behind that

piece of line moving to a new position.

I am not having too bad a time

Darling but for the fact that I am

a long way from home + don't get

a chance of being with you. We

take good care of ourselves Lassie.

You see it is part of ones duty as

a soldier to do that - only it would

sometimes appear that one gets more

credit for a wound than for being

careful + continuing efficient. Yes I

was talking to Bryant & I wrote a 

short note to Dr. Workman so that he

would know some particulars for the

"Bulletin" didn't expect he would pass
