My Own Darling,

  Your No 64 arrived last night Ta very

much. I am glad you find that it is nice and

comfy to be home and that you feel well & happy. May

you keep so Lassie. I am very pleased to hear that

Alice is alright. It is good to know that you have no

difficulties in regard to food & you certainly did right

to give Stantons a miss if you wanted to. Glad to hear

that you soon met a few friends. I expect they will

be very pleased to have you back with them.

Sorry but two of my subs are chattering and making me

laugh. Border is anxiously waiting for the end of the 

month and wants things to keep quiet until he

is on his way home. My fellows make a very good

combination - some of them are full of hate and some of them

are keen on getting the trenches in good condition - well

defended and comfortable to live in. All that about

yourselves - well that is just what I want to hear

about. I want to know what you do, how you

pass your time, what you think and everything

about you. You may not be able to put down

the words that express what you feel Sweetheart

but your letters do convey tidings of a big

love that I am so proud of. I too hope I may

come safely through Sweetheart. We have had a good

time together but the future promises more joy

& happiness than the past & to that future I look full
