very "small beer" again now - merely

a company Commander. An important

post certainly for in the line he is

practically the most important

commander. Only he has got to do

his job or suffer + if he does it

very well he is lucky to get a share

of the praise. I believe I have

commanded a company much

longer than most men - thanks to

the Old Man. Glad you got a drive

+ felt better for it. Yes the days are

long then, nicely + our long rest

has helped us over the winter very

well. Glad to hear that your leg

is going on well + hope it will

soon be quite better. Poor Ma! Still

don't worry Sweetheart. I agree with

you that it would be well for

you to get back to Grantham
