of leave came through this

morning so we are packing off

Hall & Knox to-morrow. Needless

to say they are somewhat 

pleased & it sort of makes

me more hopeful. For many

reasons I wish the CO had

gone away when we were in 

the line. Possibly the responsibilities

are greater then but there is less

of other things. I expect we 

shall get a procession of

Generals to look at us whilst we

are in training. Still I can do my 

best & I don't think the CO will

find things have gone much

astray during his absence. I am

glad you had a good time at

Barrowly. It makes me very proud

to know how much people

admire my wife & son. Yes

Cornell would get a post at the

Base. I can't think how they

right side

manage these things. Glad you

have got the light settled. I cannot

remember when I last stopped the

£1 from the Rev. Father but I think

I have made two or three payments

of 13. If those are the yarns the

Rev Father spread he departed a

long way from the truth to say

the least of it. I chose no shades.

I believe he showed me some

but I know I told them to do

it according to plan & then we

could change if we didn't like

them. When you were writing I 

was sitting by the telephone in the

line waiting for reports from "out in

front" - did that till daybreak.

Yes I see & I had forgotten

for the moment. I expect you

will have seen the CO before

you get this letter. By the

way Monson has just rolled up

after being away fourteen weeks & a
