Don't you think it would be as well

to write to Whipple & ask him to send

a car to the station to meet you - or

else tell Alice to get one for you.

Right Lassie I'll wait for the order

before altering the address. I shall

keep my tan if I don't spend too

much time in the dug out & that

depends on how the Boche behaves in

the day time. It is good to hear 

that you & Kenneth both look

well & keep well. May you

continue to do so Lassie. Sorry

that Kathleen & Jack have got

colds & hope they will be well

rid of them by now. Trust

Kenneth will not "click" - that's 

new army slang for taking hold

of anything - soft jobs, dangerous 

jobs &c. &c.
