I am afraid today I am monstrously sick of the War
LSmith drove up to here this morning bringing your letters and parcels but I didnt see him as I was in bed having been at work all day yesterday & most of the night. I am afraid today I am monstrously sick of the War and hate it very much also I feel today the Germans will be enabled to stand rather advantageously on a rather strong position. No I cannot see that destroying furniture & trees does not come under the head of military necessity, In “a war of material” all material is very valuable trees are not trees but cover for guns, chairs and tables are so much value to Haig limited as they would be to Harrods limited. Oh yes the Elephants are very much a thing of the past worse luck. We are all scattered about now. I am doing a lot of motor-cycling the roads are middling but not to bad altogether.
I cannot write any more now dearie. I will write a nicer and a longer letter soon. The bleak cold rain is beastly. I would like a square store house to live in.
We dont get any news these days, but I imagine the French are making some good progress
