just a bad patch & is getting me down a bit. And though I think for hours & hours about you, & my whole life continues to revolve round you. I do not seem to have the heart to write very much about my thoughts & about you & about Max. Perhaps & I think it has something to do with the war situation. It is so tense & tremendous. I am watching it so eagerly & always & only in connection with when & how it can end & so bring you & I [?] together again. It is now over four months since the Nazis attacked Russia & always it seems that soon things will go in a decisive way. And I watch movements of troops & aircraft out here, for another smash in the Western Desert. And the bombing of Italy & what that may mean. And American politics. And what is Japan going to do. It is all so tremendous, & so horribly slow & long drawn out. I know the result of the war, just as well as you do, & millions of others, but it is all taking such a ghastly long time. And I long with all my heart & soul to be with you, my darling Barbara. Nothing else in this world can give me even the slightest satisfaction, & still less so when compared with my passionate longing to be with you. How can I arrange & organise my life when that is how I feel & always will & certainly more & more. I do hope my next letter will be a better & brighter & longer one. I'm very fit & well darling. Eternal love to you my sweetheart. H. XXXX
