Nothing more has so far transpired concerning Allen’s moving to another unit, so that at present peace reigns supreme in the happy home. Barton has returned, but is with a Field Ambulance, I expect he will get back to the Regiment before very long. He is terribly changed since his marriage – much quieter & smoother – alas who’d be anything but a Bachelor?! The weather is still very terrible, & the mud consequently the same as ever. I have been slopping about in it & getting very wet. One can never make up one’s mind to put on waders, but always regrets not having done so, as soon as one gets up into the line. It is getting late & I am half asleep so I will “Ring off”.
