Rain, rain, & nothing but rain, wet horses, & wet clothes. However a good batch of letters greatly cheered me. Allen has come back & am now commanding A Coy. As a matter of fact my efforts were not in vain, the King’s accident occurred about a quarter of an hour after he had seen us. He behaved very well indeed, for though badly shaken & far from well he drove by in his car smiling just as if nothing had happened. We have had a lot more officers out, & I am still applying for leave which I may or may not be able to get. I think there is just a chance of it’s coming in a week or two with luck. We are leaving this place & going for the winter to somewhat quieter spheres we hope.
J.D.H. got leave from Nov 7 to 15th
