the news that Zepp. bombs had killed 14 men in this camp. However today things are brighter & the weather is lovely, the air full of skylarks & hedges with other singing birds.

We are on an upland almost within sight of the sea near Dover whose beach lights we see at night -

We are in fields of long green grass, a few copses about & the hedges white with hawthorn - Another very unpleasant incident with Twigg yesterday in which we were all concerned & a very bad night so far as sleep was concerned give my letter a doleful turn I know but things are not so bad as they sound
