My dearest Mother:
It is now a little after six o'clock. Have had supper and am now sitting in my Billet before a nice fire writing you. Today has been the typical French day in Winter, raining all day. It never misses a day here to rain, the weather is very disagreeable, making it almost impossible to enjoy the few hours we have to ourselves. We retire here between seven and nine at nights. Sleeping is about the ony real pleasure we have. The beds are most luxurious and comfortable. I know you would enjoy them. Have received no mail, can't imagine what has become of all of my mail.
Am requesting for a leave of England, begining Jan. 6th. Intend to spend most of my time in London. Will probably go up to Edinburgh,Scotland for a couple of days.
Most of our time is taken up in Regimental Manouvers, Road Marches, Advance and Rear Guard actions and etc.Have been assigned to "A C" under Captain cantwell for the present time. The Company is one of the best in the Regiment and am quite satisfied with my present position as second in command. Was talkin with [illegible] yesterday he is looking quite well. Saw some quite amusing accounts of myself in the paper. How on earth did you hear that I lost an arm and a thousand other reports that have gotten out. Am thankful to say that I can return home and all whole.
