are very glad to see us and bring out fruit coffee etc and think that we will keep them, but I am sorry to say we have not been able to do much for them. This is a beautiful town and if full of troops of all kinds I expect that there will be a big fight here soon, of course I cant say where we are or have been but you will be surprised when you do hear.

We have shot down 3 of their aeroplanes already and yesterday one of our aeroplanes was chasing theirs but I did not hear whether they got it.
