Lens but we shall make a move soon but probably only of a temporary nature.
Uncle Natty wanted mother to know that we have ha in the hall here the same old round table that she would remember well at Acton. She has been shewing me all sorts of things connected with his old house & those who lived there.
My preparations for return are now in making & I am not looking forward to the return journey. However, there ought to be a decided change by next Christmas.
Your watch keeps time like a chronometer & seems to be proof against wet & mud.
By the way when I asked you to contribute $50 towards our men's Christmas I forgot for the moment what you and Fowkes had been earning for me. Therefore there is no sense in my depleting your funds & I enclose an order on the firm which I should like you to put through.
All here send their love.
