Well it had to come. That nasty cold that I caught two weeks ago landed me straight in hospital. My doctor here at school did not want to take a chance as I was very feverish. Stayed in bed for four days only; I returned here yesterday. Was sorry to miss one week of school, but will catch up this week.
Received a grand letter from Geo. Vanier to-day. He sure is happy to see me back and is waiting anxiously my arrival in France.
I’ll be back with my unit on the 20th of Fby. I believe your best address to me is still the Base P.O. Canada.
I am meeting Kermit Roosevelt in London next Saturday at the British Empire Club. I’ll try and have a picture of the two of us for you.
This is all about the news, hope you are getting lots of mail from me. Have received you 4th letter. Write often.
A big kiss to you & baby.
P.S. Went to church in the most beautiful place you ever saw. The bldg is 200 years old, it is a grotto built on the sea shore by a great king.
