we got for he is a gentleman & a 

fine soldier. He is not staying though

as he has been sent for, to command

the 1st Bn of his own Regiment. I don't 

think I have any news to tell you

& I didn't get any letters to answer

to-day. I hear a rumour about

a move but it is very vague

at present. I am very fit & well. 
I showed some of the officers how 

to play Mrs. Simpkins the other night

when they were playing another

patience & it has caught on some.

Nearly always when one goes into 

the mess after work is over someone

is "just having another try."

I love you Little Sweetheart mine &

I wish I were with you. It is

eight weeks since I left you & soon

I shall have been away ninety days

& then my turn for leave will be
