was very doubtful about my bed

but when Madame got to work

bed it looked very inviting. Last

night I enjoyed a very good rest

& as yesterday was the end of

a church parade with a slight 

rain falling: this afterwards developed

& we have had a real rainy day. 

I have not been outside very much

& I am thankful that we are not

in the line. Still I expect we

shall soon get used to the wet &

revel in the mud of the trenches

again. We know nothing of future

plans yet but the news is

good from the front & the Boche

must be feeling fairly sick with

himself. I received your No 40

to-day, written on the 4th so it
