and sit by the fire shortly. We

have plenty of bricks from the

broken down houses but no mortar

so the brick layer used mud

instead.  I dont think it will

last for ever, but it will last

as long as we want it I hope.

We shall come back to this place

after twelve days in the line so

I think it is as well to make

it as comfortable as possible.

       I hope Ma + Mary had a good

time at Ripon.  I know that Ma

will miss you a great deal

but you know she will be none 

the worse for it + will realise

what a help you have been.  I 

wonder if you are going to Grantham

now I hope you will have a real

good time at home + not find much
