I should think. This isn't a bad place (Buxton) I am getting quite to like it. Not nearly as nice as Croydon though. I fell in love with that place somehow or other. I got a letter from Dad yesterday and am glad to say he is in Manchester, which is only about 25 miles from here, if I had a byke I would be able to go and see him. Tell Kitty I got her letter dated Oct. 11th and will answer soon. I couldn't tell you before what front I was in when in France.

I was at Ypres, where Dad has been and was just before he had his accident. So we may have quite close to-gether if we had known it.
