No 36                       1.                        7/1/18

My Own Darling,

       I was at A Coy Mess when

the mail arrived but there was nothing

for me. Just think how pleased I was

when I got back to HdQrs shortly afterwards

& found your No 31 with Kenneth's enclosed

waiting to greet me. Ta muchly. Last night

we had a surprise. After a very cold

day it began to rain about 7 pm +

the thaw continued all night + all

day to-day. This has made the roads

rather worse but the untrodden

snow is now disappearing very

quickly. This morning, having little

to do I was lazy + stayed in bed

until 8 -30 am. Since breakfast

somewhat later I have been just

walking round inspecting Billets

Transport &c so you see I have

had a very restful day. To-morrow

we shall be out all day so that

will be a change if not quite such
