your letters & the parcel safely to-day. It was

very good of Nell to think about a lonely Mother.

I do hope you are getting on well Sweetheart

& that the Doctor will be correct in

saying that you will soon get fit

again. I have had a busy day again

but have got through most of the work 

and now it is only a question of

slight re-adjustments & getting everything

shaken together. The more I see of the new

C.O. the more I like him & we have certainly

got a change for the better. The other

fellow is still here & I understand that

luck on us isn't it. To-night I have

promised to go to the next village to

dine with Chambers. He comes from Grantham

& probably you will remember my talking about

him. I have no real news Lassie. I am

very fit & well. I got rid of my bandage

this morning thank goodness. We had a

parade this afternoon & I had to sit as
