France, May 15, 1918

Dear Wife;-

I did not get mail of any kind to day but yesterday received your letter of May 8 and one from Enid written of April 5. Enid told me that Elo had made a cake for me and was sending it forward.

It is a most beautiful day out of doors, quite the finest we have had this spring. Everything is growing very fast and the trees will be completely in leaf before long. I had had some idea of going out for a ride this afternoon but my mare got kicked on the leg and is for the time being out of action.

By this time you will have made your trip to London and probably know your fate in regard to the particular appointment you have been considering. I hope that the interview was a success from your point of view.

We are kept fairly busy in the mornings here but there is not a great deal to do in the afternoons. This afternoon I had a hair cut out under an apple tree in the orchard and afterwards played a game of quoits. The artillery has been quite lively lately and during the past two days the aeroplanes have been showing great activity.

Fine weather like this makes me wish I were about to get away on leave. When leave does open again we shall likely have to feel our way about in a fog as we did last winter.

Please excuse this very short note.

Your lovingly

Harold W. McGill
