Feature Letter of January 22nd, 2020
I had a nice job on my birthday (you may be aware that it is the same day as Mildred's) so you can imagine the contrast between the day and the work. I was helping to put up barb wire entanglements on "No Man's Land", that is between our front line and "Fritzies". I was thinking at the time that I had spent more congenial nights on former birthdays. Ah well, it's all in the game these days, dates, or anniversaries count for nothing to the individual over here while engaged in "strafing the hun". I have something bright to look forward to in the near future. I expect to get a leave for England in a few weeks. I will probably be over there by the time you receive this letter, at least I hope so. I can assure you that I am anxiously looking forward to that time.
