My Own Darling,

  Our communications

are not so good as I have

known them before but I 

hope they are improving steadily.

I am very fit & well and

enjoying a fairly strenuous

existence. My leisure time

is very liable to interruptions

and my plans subject to 

alterations. Some day we may

again strike a restful place

and then I must make up

for my lack of letters. I was

delighted to receive your last

two letters and Kenneth's enclosed.

I'll try & answer them to-morrow.

I feel lonely at times also Lassie

even when the Boche shells are

keeping me company. Perhaps the

war will be over soon & then

we shall be together again for

more than a few days. May our

fellows prove to the Boche that he

is in the wrong quickly so 

that the peace may come.

  I love you Darling & I hate

being away from you. It seems
