My Own Darling, 

I may get back rather late

to-night so am writing this morning.

We are very comfortable here. Our new fire

place is a success and since it was

finished we have kept up a big

blazing wood fire. It proved to be a

great luxury this morning for there was

a hard frost during the night.

I am setting off shortly with the

CO to visit the line we shall be

taking over in a few days. We shall

have a long walk but owing to

the frost I expect most of the

mud will be dried up & the

going will be easier than it was

the other day when I went to part

of the line. I have no news Lassie.

Saw, or rather some of the others did,

I have no news Lassie. Saw, or rather some of the others did,
