My Own Darling Wife,

  Many thanks for your

two letters of the 23rd & 24th

just received. I seem to have been

awfully busy these last few days but

as we go into the line to-morrow

perhaps I'll get a rest then.

The two days sports went off

quite well I believe & quite a 

number of people said it was the

best show & certainly the best

run show they had seen out

here. We got through 22 events

on the last day - including

horse jumping & judging - in five

& a half hours. We were fortunate

yesterday in having a fine day.

To-day I have been to look at our

new position. Started off at 9:30

& a few minutes after that the

rain began. It is now 5:30 pm

& the rain has been falling

heavily all day & looks like 

keeping on for hours longer. Glad

to see that John has been

looking after you well. Nothing

more has come through about

the course but expect it 

will if I keep patient. Don't
