My Own Darling Wife,

  Many thanks for your letter

of the 21st just received & your parcel

received last night. We had  (probably whatever edible thing she sent)

a parcel also & so we did have (something nice to eat)

for tea on Whit Sunday. It is

again. We had a church 

morning & most of the day I have

lying in the shade in my tent.

I played soccer & to-day I suffer

two Cramps though I have no

show. In the evening I had a

dinner with another Lincoln Bat

has done some good fighting

area. We are not staying

seemed possible at one 

a little nearer to the Boche

I believe we have to
