My Own Darling Wife,

  I was pleased to receive

your letter when I got back this

afternoon. We have had a fairly 

strenuous day. Underwood brought in

my early morning cup of tea at 

4:45 am. I had breakfast at 5:40 am

& then rode off to a place where we

were doing field firing. I walked

up & down the range (about 1000 yds)

about six times to say nothing of

wandering from side to side watching

the men & giving advice &c. We

had lunch off a sirloin of cold

roast beef about 1:30, as soon as

we had finished & now it is 

3:30. We have had a small shower

this morning but yesterday evening 

just after we got in from doing

a tactical scheme the whole sky

seemed to fall down in one shot.
