This is my first letter to you in quite a long time. I got off at Godalming yesterday afternoon and got out to the camp without any especial exciting adventures. The evening was quite chilly.
I hope you are feeling better and able to start right in at your shopping. This morning I sent in your name as that of my dependent who desired to accompany me on the troopship. We should hear something about it in a few days. It may be that we shall get away at an earlier date than we have been counting upon. In any case there will scarcely be time for me to get another suit finished. Have you decided to have your hamper go with my surplus kit, or shall we send the trunk or perhaps both through the O. in/c of Estates branch?
I came away from the hotel yesterday with the key to our suite in my pocket. I must mail it back to-day. Let me know when you write as to whether or not you can furnish me with a bed (single) at your house should I manage to get up within the next week. The O.C. went on his leave last Thursday so I shall not likely be able to get up until Saturday at the earliest and perhaps not until Monday or Tuesday of next week. In any case I shall go up again at the earliest opportunity.
One of our sergeants who has been out to Devon for his leave told me that we were wise not to attempt the trip to the West of England. He says he never before saw such crowds out that way and that travelling was devoid of all comfort, the trains being so crowded.
Write soon and let me know how you are getting along with your shopping. I have a few pounds left over after our leave in case you should need any money.
Your loving husband
Harold W. McGill
