My Own Darling Wife,

  We are having another

summer change. I hear, on good

authority, that there was a tremendous

thunderstorm during the early hours

of the morning. I knew nothing about

it but found plenty of evidence

when I turned out this morning.

It was fine then but only for a 

short time. There has been

continuous showers ever since - if

one may make use of such a 

phrase. Fortunately, my home is

weather proof so far as the roof is

concerned. I spent yesterday afternoon

visiting our new camp and I

think it will prove a very

pleasant place. I had just

time to get a cup of tea before

going to HdQrs. for the meeting

about Divisional Sports. The meeting

was like all others and I managed
