Dear Marjorie,
Received your letter, murder books seem to be the best, because we have not time to read anything heavy. By the way I have received the book you sent and it seems alright, I have not had time to start reading yet. Your income tax will be quite considerable, it will be hardly worth earning any money shortly, if only we could see the end of the war, in sight, it would not be so bad. Things are not so hot in the Balkans although I think things will improve shortly, as I see it, it does not matter much what ground is captured or how much. So long as we can keep giving Gerry battle we are bound to beat him in the end, of course the end may be a year or two's time. The gun pits here are still in the making and of course we are still filling sand bags, although I am getting use to it, it is still very heavy work and not the sort I like, but still I guess it is all for the good of the cause. I am glad you are reading books about married life, it should help a bit when we are married and that darling should not be long now, about another twelve weeks, that's if every thing goes along all right. Write and tell me what arrangements you are making for the great day or perhaps it is a little too early to do anything yet. It is very funny the officer heard me swearing the other day so now I have to say the lord's prayer twenty times to him per day for a fortnight. Heck, I do not know whether this sort of punishment is supposed to reform me, as for me swearing is concerned I think it is a great joke. Well darling I will try and write later on in the week.
Cherrio
Darling
