the bushes but it is away to the

north of our sector + not the part 

we are "up against." Am going for

tea now + will come + write more

afterwards. 5.45 pm Have had a good

tea. To go back to the new house. It

is a large one for this area of France

consisting of a room 11 feet by 10 feet

+ about 8 feet high 6 ft 6 inches of it

is below the ground level and the

roof is estimated to be proof against

shrapnel. The approach consists of a

flight of seven steps and the whole

place is well camouflaged. I 

trust it will remain untouched

by the Boche. The postman forgot to

send me up any letters with the

rations last night. Your stay with

Maud + John will be very short after

you receive this letter. I hope
