Well, what do you think of the Huns now? They appear to be going back, because we surprised them, knew their plans, and used too many tanks. What lame excuses. I suppose the Crown Prince thinks he has won another victory, a strategical retreat or something like that. He Is getting to be quite a General or Field Mar- shall - but not in this war among the flying men, I think Major Bishop has cost the enemy a fortune - by crashing his planes and men - and you should just hear the pilots 'promenading' with their bombs over to Fritzie, giving him the rations which he detested and when he thinks it a nice night he slips over here with a few, and the guns bark at him, machine guns also, and our airmen chase him. One can hear the rat-a-tat-tat of the pilot's gun anytime. Say, did you hear the good news. Read it (see date of letter). No wonder you think we are a bunch of optimists because we said we weren't beaten. Vimy is still safe and we will win sometime before 1920.'
