3. Is a view of the pines there are quite a lot of pines around here.

17. On the out skirts of Godalming.
18. Stuart and his pit. It was tied up to a bush so we took a snap of it.

I have a few more to send when they are finished. The weather has been real good here lately for taking pictures. It hasn't rained now for over two weeks which is something very unusual for this country. Things are going about the same as usual here nothing much to do. Let me know if you get these pictures alright.

I seen Andrew & Gordon this morning. The 202 are deposting their colours in Godalming Church this afternoon. They just went past here a few minutes ago.

Well I guess that is all for this time. I will try & write a letter some tme before long. It is such nice weather now it is hard to sit down to write.
