Dear People,

As you see, I have arrived at my unit, and shall be ready for duty to-morrow. I left Leicester at 6.15 last evening after a delightful fortnight. Reached Hull at 10.30, and put up for the night, coming on here this morning. The camp is rather a good one, the mess especially being quite attractive. The regiment is, of course, a very old one, and even here in camp has some fine plate, etc. The recreation room is very comfortable. I am writing there now. I have not yet had time to make acquaintances, but the officers I have seen strike me very favorably. The chap whose quarters I am to share for the present is away on week-end; so I have not seen him yet.

I don't know just how to advise you about my mail. I may be here several months - on the other hand I may be sent to take special courses etc. at any time. Perhaps it would be just as well to send it to Louie. It will mean only a day's delay.

Until I have more to tell you.
