I got the box of cake you sent today I tell you it is great to get something from home. I got your snaps O.K. They were fine. I guess they think is a better Place to train than Whitley. I guess we all have until we go to France I suppose you are glad your time is of with the church camp. that train is still late it times is it this is the first winter there has been skating here for sometime. you are having pretty cold wether by what you say how are you getting alog with your hospital if I was Gow.
