My Own Darling,

  Another day's work is nearly

over so I sit down to write again. I had 

just made a start when the post 

arrived with Nell's letter which I see

Lulu addressed. Ta very much. To-day

has been a beautifully fine day - a

promise of spring. The snow has disappeared

very rapidly and the country looked

very pretty with the winter corn

giving a green tint to so many of

the fields. We went out on a route 

march this morning & did a small 

tactical scheme as well. It was very

pleasant walking but the wind was

cold when one stood still. The only

interesting thing that happened this 

afternoon is that I got my hair cut.

  Our village looks very different now

that its covering of snow has gone. 

Like most other French villages it is

very picturesque when viewed from

a distance & somewhat dilapidated
