wait for a little while before you pay Coultas. Dear. I am

glad you were welcomed back so promptly and find 

that food difficulties +c are not too great. Can't get

too many letters. Must have something to read in my 'spare'

time in the line. Ma will have been with you for some

time when you receive this + I hope she is having a

good time and feeling better for the change. Did

Miss Emma say how Thomas was getting along?

We too are glad that days are getting longer though

sometimes a long night is very useful for getting work

done. Fancy Kenneth + his bag of flour! I had a

letter from Mendel last night and also the Journal

He seems to be going strong at Saltfleetby + Leafort

is quite fit again though he does not say so.

  I don't think I have any news Lassie. Things are

pretty quiet here and everyone is confident + would be

pleased to teach the Boche several more lessons

should his long talked of offensive materialise. 

  Sweetheart mine I love you + am all yours.

May all happiness wait upon you + may we soon be

together again. Love to Ma + Love + kisses for Kenneth

Heaps of kisses for you Beloved - a big hug + all my

love.


Your own Hubby

Harold
