that that is all he has to do to be lited out. I have my
breakfast cooked in the Sgts Mess, just across the road, & brought
across to my bedroom at 8-0 o'clock. I also have my tea in
my room, & keep my own beer down here too. So I have
a very pleasant self contained little existence- & just go up

to do something he does not want to do. And he looks
furiously at me when I slap him. I must have his
photograph taken soon, so as you can see what he
looks like, together with me and my crown.
The numbers of my letters have suddenly reached
significant figures, according to my rather superstitious
mind - and I feel sure something is going to happen -
