Mr. F.M. Field, K.C., has just received the following letter from the front

France, April 11th, 1918

Mr. Field, Dear Sir:
Just a few lines to let you know I received your letter dated March 3rd and was, as usual, very glad to hear from you. I am deeply indebted to you for the services you have been showing me, and I know that you are doing all in all in your power to get me a leave to Canada, and if it fails, it is not your fault, I judge from your letter that I would have to go under a military examination out here, and if found unfit I would be sent back to Canada. Well, I am afraid I would not be passed as unfit as I think I look better and feel as good as I ever did before, in fact better, only for my poor circulation, (He had a case of Trench feet) but nevertheless I hope to hear from you soon again to find out particulars, I had a letter from Mother and she told me all you were doing for me in the shape of getting me home.
Things are going at a terrific rate here now, the Hun is doing his best to break the British line, but I am afraid the Allies will break him before long, at least I hope so, it is costing the Germans a terrible toll of life for the advance he has made, and of course we have also lost our share. The weather has been bad out here and naturally in our favor, it helps to check his speedy advance.
Now, Mr. Field, I think I have told you all the news just now. Thanking you for past favors, I remain,
Yours truly,
