April 14 1918
Received your rather brief epistle of March 24 today. So glad to hear you are having beautiful weather. It seems that you & I never have it at the same time do we? For today is the coldest bleakest day we've had for ages.
So glad that you and Madge can be together Easter. I wish I could be with you. We had a fine Easter here as far as memory goes. I received your Easter card and the snaps a few days ago. Thanks for them at your suggestion I am returning the snaps in this letter.
Walter Archibald went to France two weeks ago tomorrow morning. Ralph is out there now and has been gone for about 3 months. Carl Dexter has a permanent position in the officers quarters which he got not long ago and has not yet started training. You asked what I thought of Frank's letter. Well he seemed to think a lot of his own ability as a flyer. I suppose were he to meet me over here he wouldn't speak to me since he is an officer.
No the air raids have not yet come down here, but a number of our fellows have been wounded in air raids over here.
I hope to get another pass before going to France and hope to go to the Highlands if possible. I saw quite a bit of London & Edinburgh last trip so am hoping to see the country of Scotland. Scotland is heaps prettier than England tho England is very quaint.
Well I must close now.
