promises to be rather amusing.

Our wireless press is interesting

and so I expect that as the

experts read their newspapers

at breakfast they will again

be deciding the exact date

for the end of the war. I 

am still holding to the opinion

I have expressed although I

do allow that conditions may

be worse in Germany than we

are led to believe & that they

may realise the futility of

prolonging the show. I think it

will be a great pity if we are

too willing to meet them for we

ought to make certain that

the affairs of the nations will

be settled for many generations.

Germany has shown how she

respects treaties & we ought to see

that she becomes weak enough

to really respect those who back

right side

the peace terms. Glad Kenneth was

a little man. Tell him Daddy has

gone to France to look after

Mammy & so that he can come 

back & play with Kenneth again

as soon as possible. I am pleased

the machine goes well & hope you

will get much satisfaction out of

the work you do with it. I saw

the Old Man for a few minutes

yesterday. He was very pleasant

to me - talked about the CO &c. &

asked if I had a good time on leave.

They would have wired for me had

they not expected me back that day.

Hart Davis was rather hurt because 

he didn't get the chance to wire.

so he says. The man they were

trying to get in Dean's place

likes his own job better & so the

thing has not developed yet. 

Hope it won't. Sorry it was

harder to let me go this time
