My Dearest
Just another line or two to tell you that I am (O.K. but frozen. Every where [sic] & things around here is ice bound: we have had two days now. Tonight we are holding a dance & Cabaret in the mess as a sort of House warming party most of the fellows have invited girls up from Lincoln. I wish you were coming, it would then be quite enjoyable then.
I [smudged] was [/smudged] expecting a letter from you today. I hope my parcel of laundry arrives tomorrow or I shall miss the laundry here again. Have you seen any more of Bert? Dont [sic] forget to let me have his address will you. I will write him occasionally anyway. Last night I wrote to Rex. It is getting tim [sic][time] the estate was cleared up now, and in any case I would like to know what is going on & what is happening about the Garage Rent

[page break]

The boys in the billet have just been having short discussion on "Morals in war time" The Canadians have a very poor opinion of the morals of English women. (So have the Americans) It is fairly obvious that they (morals) have certainly gone to the dogs during the [corrected] war [/corrected] It will take a long [corrected] while [/corrected] after to get normal again.

Well darling I must close now with all my love for you & the Boys.
All yours
Always
Ian.
