Monson - Yes I remember telling

you now. I expect this week

will pass fairly quickly for there

is still plenty to do. We have

got our camp into very good

shape and the men are getting

very smart again after their spell

in the trenches. The General is

on his "Gingering up" policy & much

to my annoyance (to say nothing of

comfort) he insists that all

officers are on the early morning

parade. I turn out bright &

smiling at 6:40 am to watch the

parades fall in & then walk round

for an hour giving words of cheer

& otherwise. Howard is back

& his wife & family are doing 

well. I think we are all fit

& well & in good form. The

post corporal has just come for this
