think.  The B I C was round yesterday.

He didnt ask for me so I stayed in

my dugout. I hear he was very pleased 

with most things that he saw.  I have

not received a letter since your long

one No 62 but I expect I shall

get one up with rations tonight. You

were right in supposing that I 

should be up most of the night

but I got over three hours sleep

tonight.  Unfortunately the frost has

given + a drizzling rain started so we

look like getting who the mud again.

I wonder if you managed to get

to have Smiths.  Hope the photos will

be good ones. Tell Kenneth Daddy
