Letter No. 35 Monday April 21st Major J.H.Massey
6 Palestinian Coy, The Buffs
Middle East Force
My darling, sweet Barbara,
Thank goodness, your letters have started
again at last. Last night. I was writing to you miserably
but said that I hoped Monday would bring me luck again,
and it has done. Your 31st letter, posted on March 3rd, and a
really lovely letter too and it has made me very happy and
contented today - it has just made all the difference. But
I wish somebody could tell me what happens to the other
ones - I have now had -- 1 - 5 - 7 - 13 - 14 - 15 - 19 - 21-
22 - 22 1/2 - 23 - 25 - 26 - 31 - but, of course, in nothing
like that order. But I must not go flying off the handle
again about these posts - you must be getting pretty
bored with it by now. But it does make me so furious
I was so pleased to hear that my letters are arriving
alright, and that my long one - no 4 - had appears at last.
As I think I told you before, it looked so fat and
[in...] - and represented so many eggs in one basket, if
it had been unlucky enough tto meet a u-boat.
Your letter arrived today, just five minutes after the
weekly half hour I have appointed for wearing respirators -
and when I got to the part about Lisa' gravestone, I could
not keep my tears back, and as people kept coming into
my office for things, I was glad of the respirator.
My poor sweet darling - it must be a sad and heartbreaking
task, and you are very brave to do it. But I am so
happy that you are, and you will be, too. Of course, I
agree that - darling child of ____ is the only inscription
you could put. She was beloved, and dearly loved, but
