Forward to Harold [his brother] and return to WSP
France Sep 23/17
Your box of Players to hand and I thank you very much, I do not know whether I owe you a letter or not; but this will be an answer if I do.
It is Sunday & a fine day. I am B[attalion] O[rderly] Sgt and not having very much to do have taken the liberty to lay out on the grass underneath a large tree, I was go to say something about shade but I see there is no leaves on it so I’ll keep quiet.
In the distance I can hear the roar of the heavies, but we should worry about them just – now at least.
The weather has been splendid of late and I hope it continues as it counts a lot to us.
I think I heard from nearly everybody this last week, your pcl [parcel] making it complete.
Well I guess we will soon be in for another winter much to my regret as I am fed up.
Well I’m stuck again for something to say, but seeing that the saying is [?] I guess I will close with love to all.
Hoping you are as well as myself.
