Well my first week at College is over. It sure was quite strenuous, but got over it with flying collars.
The school commandant dished out compliments to-day, Blais highly intelligent, et un bon soldat. After this I may be dum as they come next week, however I’ll hold my own against any of these B.A. officers.
I am learning my english all over again, and will be quite an englishman again when I return.
The weather is gorgeous or très beau, nothing to do till Monday but study —
I received some wonderful photos of myself, from the Press to-day. Getting copies at once for you. A party is now leaving for Canterbury cathedral and I am invited.
Keep well, and lots of love.
