My Own Darling Wife,

           Just a short line this

time to tell you that I am

sitting up + taking nourishment

but in spite of that the Doc

says I have to go to Hospital

for a rest. I don't expect to

be there very long but as I

cannot get rid of a very

slight temperature I am not

allowed to stay in camp

I expect I shall be kept

a mile or two from here

only + shall try to get

back at the beginning of

next week.

  It is rather rotten being

seedy at this time especially

when I am acting Major + the

work is interesting Perhaps

I'll catch up to Nobby + we'll

have a good time together

 I will write to you
