My Own Darling,

  Sunday once more & still

the frost holds good in spite of

sundry appearances of thaw which

have had little effect. The country

is looking pretty, the roads are

getting better but they are still

rather bad for travelling. I took

Church Parade this morning. We 

did not stand very long

but we all got frightfully

cold. We are still enjoying 

the rest & the change from the 

line. It seems an age since

I saw you Sweetheart & I do

wish I could come home again

for a time. It is difficult to

put down one thought on paper

but Darling you do know

how I miss you don't you?

  I haven't enjoyed this time

in France for things have not
