the war will be over by Xmas. No news

of the course yet. The Bn has done

well lately but we are not a

great crowd now a days. We are

working by day instead of at night just

now & it is more pleasing. I was

pleased to receive your No 13 to-day.

I am awfully sorry for you all

& I wish I could have been with 

you. It must be a very sad

time for you all. How suddenly

it all happened & yet I am sure

it was better that Dad did not

linger in pain. I am glad you got

a wreath from us Lassie.

  I am glad to hear that Kenneth 

has been a good Laddie & a great

comfort. It must be a great strain

for Mother but I hope she is

keeping well. I think it would

perhaps be the best change she

could have to go with you

but you will know the best.

  It has been a very trying &

heavy time for you Darling & I

am so far away. May you keep 

fit & well under the strain.

  If you have not had that

dress dyed don't Lassie - Get another
