My dear brother
I have just finished my court martial work for the day and now have an opportunity for letter writing. I think I told you that I had been sent for to defend a man on the staff of an English corps and had been successful. The case was interesting and was important because the Corps in question attached so much importance to it. It was difficult because there was no evidence procurable for the defence who therefore had to rely on cross-examination.
Today the principal case has been one of investigation of the canteen affairs of a Bn involving a charge with the Larceny Act & another lighter charge against the manager of a canteen. He was convicted of the less serious charge which quite met the justice of the case.
