5/ Thank you & Ford for the whetstones I dont doubt that some one of my chums will have one & my Segt (a good chap English) the other. The letter he sent over but the other would be opened in case it was grub parcels of gone men are always opened. It is a good plan & axepted by all I remember sending Bill Brown a Field P.C. I sent several to people I thought would be pleased or interested to see one. They are very useful In dangerous times I sent 1 every week at least home when there is reason for my folks to know I am in the particular part that the heavy stuff is going on. I keep them posted as a rule as to my exact location. But it cannot be done to Canada. I have had tea since I wrote the last line & have now got hold of a slow sticking pen & bum ink so it is going to be a slow job to write much more. I saw a letter today that Peterson got fm F. Murphey last spring
