It so happens that I am billeted near Div Hqrs just now & in fact I must run over there in a few minutes. The Boche is bursting some H.E shrapnel high over head just now but I think it is a bad shot for one of our balloons. The American officers are funny looking chaps but they look as if they had brains.

Your loving brother Arthur
