I am finding your little case very useful. I only noticed the lovely little drawing of the “Paloma” two days after it arrived.
M. our Interpreter caught an owl walking about today and has brought it into his dugout where he says it will eat the rats but I think the Poor Little Bird would rather be in his trees. However M. L’interpreter says no and that it will be very happy there Good night my love Your most loving
