My darling Johnnie thanks for your letter of the 22nd. It is a pity that operations are held up for a bit, but maybe you went on the raid to Rostock last night. If so, I hope you didn't have any trouble. There's really nothing much to write about today. I'm sending off socks & torch batteries & collar stiffeners probably today. I just long for you all the time & try to fill in the dreary weeks that must elapse
[page break]
as usefully as possible. But everything seems so pointless without you. I do wish they'd buck up & give you leave. I'm glad you've had the second lesson in the agriculture course. Will it be possible to send it on to me, or must you return the papers to them?
All my love to you my dearest. I wish the days wouldn't drag so when you're not here & rush past when you are! Yours for always, Ursula
