We are embarking at or before 10 A.M. today. I simply cannot go aboard until I have dropped you at least this small note. Was appointed Transport Officer today. Have visions of supervising the loading, storing and handling of all our impedimenta. I trust that by the time you get this that you will know by the papers, or otherwise, that we are landed in England O.K. Things seem very promising that we shall. Practically no sick men and very little storm. Best love and as a final request send Ferne’s address to me and mine to her—Thanks.
Again best love and xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo to you and all
