Now if you please I am being sent to no less a place than GHQ to defend a man there on a very serious charge. He happens to be a Canadian which is the reason for my employment. Fortunately some few days ago I sent to Janson Cobb for a handy book on criminal law as the usual manual of mil. law does not take one very far in these civil offences.
I wonder if I shall find Beauclerc there. The weather is beautiful but the war news not very encouraging.
Land & Water still comes but as I said before I don't think it is worth the money especially at the increased price. I really prefer the Saturday Evening Post of which we get copies occasionally through the YMCA. I should miss Punch tremendously if it did not come for it is quite the best & most popular paper there is.
Now that I am in touch with Division it is often
