It is rather hard fact that most strangers (usually officers or people who can tell fm my talk that I am fm overseas) who get to know that I am back a second time at once seem to feel certain that I am in some way an undesirable. perhaps this is helped because I am a Spr not a N.C.O. That is nothing. I have refused promotion on an average about once every 6 weeks I should say since I first came to Eng.

What a rotten trick of that French fanatic to take a shot at Clemenceau. He is certainly one of the Great Men which this war had brought forward & is above all a man of & a friend to the ordinary run of people. He will be a loss to us as well as France if he goes under or looses even some of his wonderful energy & brainpower. Strange that those leaders who are assiniated in this way are usually those leaders who the world is best agreed on as to their worth. I belive perhaps that one of the good results of this war will be that it will be less popular in the U.S. to decry everything British than it was befor so many yanks came over & saw what we could & were doing.
