know yet who will command

A Coy for we are so short of

officers for the time being.

  Many thanks for the parcel

of good things that awaited

me last night. The cakes are

very good & I hope to pass a

pleasant hour or two with

the books. I do appreciate your 

good wishes for my birthday

Lassie. No, you couldn't 

possibly hug me too tight.

  I think our son is a great

man & I thought he was more 

than a little bit like his

Daddy - especially in his

ways. Glad he had a good 

time at school.

  Yes Earl is only a major

- but he gets acting rank.

Seconded means that a man

is sort of permanently attached

to some regiment or work other

than his own regiment. No

haven't been lucky enough to

strike Emerson yet. Are you

spoiled pet? Well if so

I hope to spoil you again 

some day soon & continue to do

so for many years. It is great
