My dear Family,
Many thanks to you all for letters from G. & O. a paper from Odd & a bottle of teetotal drink from G. & W. I will see if I can get back before the 16th prox, but I can’t say for certain, as though I shall be due for leave before then, I may not get it “to wance” as leave is rather short at the moment. However I will do my best. There is no news. Things are very quiet except the usual mutual artillery strafe which continues at decent intervals & never during meal times. I have just heard that as the French are to start daylight saving we are to do the same, & I must put my watch on an hour to-night. so I shall lose
an hours beauty sleep to-morrow morning.
I hear Newton Binney is somewhere in this district, so I may see him some time shortly.
Love to all
