we nearly had a collision on entering the harbour but both ships exercised great care in navigation great skill in averting the disaster [?]. We are now farther from the firing line than we have been since landing in England but more liable to be forwarded there at a moments notice. Joe and I are still tighter but Willie Langley [?] has been sent on. We are still standing by for orders but today one of us Capt. Andrews got his marching orders. - I am thoroughly enjoying my introduction to French soil & picking up the language fast.

With much love ever your brother Arthur
