They are shut out now by the ice & rapidly falling river but until that happened they were there every day & all day long whatever the weather. In this picture the last building on the right is our office.
I also enclose a photo of our boar hunting party & the big boar. There are boars about here but we have not seen them. In fact in all my walks I have only seen a few partridges and a pine marten though there are plenty of tracks of deer & rabbits. The people here are friendly & treat us well.

Much love to Mother and all at home.
Your affectionate brother
Arthur D. Crease
