My Own Darling Marion,

  I have just been reading again

the letter you wrote last Sunday & which

I received last night. I expect you will be 

at Grantham now & I hope you are settling

down easily. It is a much better day to-day

& I have a nice clean feeling about me. I

am sort of sitting propped up on my bed

writing & smoking a pipe. I had run out of

Navy Cut & had been smoking mixtures 

for some time before we came out. We

got to an E.F.C. the other afternoon & I was

able to get a supple of decent tobacco

so I am really enjoying a pipe again. This

morning I had my breakfast in bed and 

after a cigarette turned out for a hot bath.

Dressing took a long time & it was after

mid day when I was finally clothed.

Since church I have wandered about

looking after the building of our new

Mess & also seeing that the camp was

clean &c. Yesterday instead of resting as we
