Just to let you know I am still jogging along alright, although still in bed. I cannot say that I feel very ill but the doctors know best. I don’t expect it will do me any harm to stop here for a bit although it gets rather tiring.
We came here last Saturday had 11 hrs ride in an ambulance train. It was packed. I had the middle bed so I had a good view of the country the first time I have had a chance of seeing much of it was we travelled at night when we went up the line.
I am very close to “Blighty” now. It is only the water in between but I don’t think I am bad enough to get over to England worse luck.
I expect I shall be convalescent in a few days & I shall probably be there long enough to give you an address to write to. I shall be very pleased to get some news again. I come off alright for new laid eggs now. Always have one for tea. They are tres bon.
Well I think I must conclude now.
I hope you are all in the best of health.
With much love from
