Letter No. 95. Tuesday. Jan 27th

Major J.H. Massey 6 Palestinian Coy. The Buffs M.E.F.

My sweetest darling.

It is a wonderful thing, & very fortunate too, that you love me & are interested in all that I do, & that without fear of [?] you, I may write about the past & the future. Because the present is so dull & uninteresting I am so glum. My last letter, in reply to yours on the same theme, was mostly about my love & faithfulness to you. I hope you did not remark that I said nothing at all about your love & faithfulness to me. But, sweetheart, you have told me to believe you & believe in you - & I do. I cannot bear to think about you not loving me - far less to write about it - & being unfaithful to me. And I cannot think for a moment that you would be unfaithful to me unless you were also to stop loving me - in which case it would hardly be unfaithfulness. And you always, or nearly always, tell me that you love me & you would never say such a thing unless you meant it. So, darling dearest, let me talk no more about that awful subject & only talk about love. I am more lovesick about you than in love with you just now. The news has been depressing the last few days. I nearly wept when the news came through that we were being heavily counter attacked in [?] & more or less coming back again. Perhaps & I hope to God it is so, we shall contain this counter attack & then carry on again & finish off the Nazis & the [?] in N. Africa. But if not, I cannot help thinking, of course, about how the [?] is
