My dear Mother

6 a. m & I am about to go to bed but I just write to let you know that I have been in & am now out of the great strafe all serene. The Battn. did well & took all its objectives. I was in command as the C. O. stayed out. The weather is vile & the trenches we have made absolutely filthy. I am covered in mud & must wash.

Love
from Jack.
