R.P. March 8, 1917.
It is as cold as it ever has been, and is snowung again now. I am glad of an office to sit in. I am still doing the Adjutant’s work, but I do not know for how long.
I hope you are not finding any dificulty in getting food. We fortunately can rely on our rations, which do not vary much, but we have difficulty in getting fuel, which is very short in this cold weather.
The Colonel and I are alone at Headquarters at present, and as he spends the day out I have to remain here and look after things and deal with any urgent messages.
