Put my name on my letters. This address will do till I am sure I am in the 58th Btty.
Got your letter all right. It’s great you like your new place so well. I suppose you will have your little troubles at first. Only you can’t do the same as I did when somebody bothers you. I used to tell them if they wanted to raise — to come out in front of the Company and I would try and accommodate them. Lucky for me they never called my bluff.
Well, I am going on another pass today. Only four days this time. I am going to London first and then Portsmouth. I have all the passes I wanted the last month.
When I come back (Monday) I am going to the 58th Howitzer Btty. I was transferred last week. I will be glad to get out of the infantry. Artillery for me from now on. I don’t know much about it yet. I will write when I get there. They tell me it is fine.
I’m sorry I sent all my pictures home before your letter came. I will have some more soon. In a new suit. With Love Daw.”
