My Own Darling Wife,

  Just a few lines in the hopes

that I may catch a post to-night. I

was glad to receive Kenneth's letter

last night & to find that the 

parcel arrived safely.

  I had a fairly long night

last night & look like having another

as we move to-night. We shall

only be staying four days in

the next place & then going a while

further back for the Brigade will

then be going out of the line

for a short time.

  I am still keeping very

fit this fine warm weather

seems to agree with me. I expect 

you will be making preparations

for your move. Don't work too hard

when you get back home but

have as good a time as you

can. 

  Heaps of love & kisses Darling

                  Your own Boy
