My Own Darling Marion,

        I have got a new place to write

in today for last night we moved into a

new house - much larger than the last

one. The move took place whilst I was

having dinner with HdQrs so it did not

cause me any inconvenience. I had to

leave my arm chair behind + so I have

made a new one this afternoon. I found a

nice shady place where, with a little

clearing, the bushes made an excellent

back rest. A sandbag loosely filled

with dry earth formed the seat, while

a hole dug in the ground gives me

room for my feet + allows me so sit

straight up in comfort. I am still in

the same wood having moved less

than fifty yards this time. I have

had a pleasant afternoon, rest
