Just a line to say I am O.K. again. Have just returned from a nice week end at Hythe, and am feeling much better for the outing.
Do not know what I shall do as yet, but I have a week to put in some place. Lady Drummond of Red Cross wants me to go up to the north of England, where she claims she has quite a nice place for me. But Lancaster does not appeal to me very strongly especially as I would be alone. Then, too, Mrs Andrews wants me to stay with them at Hythe and the cottage is right on the sea, so it looks very good to me.
Today I have some shopping to get. I am getting a suit of civvies for fear peace should be declared, and, as it is just over a year since I have had "clothes" on I will be glad to get into them again.
I am taking it for granted that you will have completed your course and will be at home for a spell. I am glad you are going to try to get into Varsity Artillery Battery & I hope you succeed.
Lots of love. Wilb.

Letter from Wilbert today but nothing much in it. I expect he has been pretty sick as he was still in England & said the Drs Board has ordered him to stay another week. We never had as short a letter from him. I expect he did not want to tell us much about his illness. Said he was sick of London & wanted to get back to the front as he knew he was needed there. The soldiers expect to leave here on Wednesday. Expected a letter from you today but did not get it. Must mail this now to catch the train.
