leave still continues so there is

hope that our meeting may

be in a few weeks. I wonder if

we have settled down to the

wet winter weather or will we

have another spell of dry sunny

days? I don't like rainy days

very much & I expect Kenneth

takes after me in that respect.

I love you Sweetheart mine & I

would that I were with you. I

see that the Daily Mirror we got

to-day says the Boche wishes

to talk of peace. Perhaps he is

really beginning to realize that

he is bound to go under in

the long run & would like to 

talk. For my own personal

comfort I should welcome peace

but I hope that we shall fight
