in the vicinity. We visited Cantebury Cathderal
and it sure is a wonderful place. Thomas
a Beckett was murdered in it about 1000
years ago. It's a magnificent place. We had
tea at the little wayside inn and then drove
home. Altogether it was a great afternoon. The
weather is ideal. Theo says she is going to
write and tell you how Ted and I have been
disappating in London. She took a picture
of me entering a BAR and Ted pulling me
out by the coat tails. I can't begin to tell
you how kind and thoughful they both are.
I feel as if I had known them all my life.
When I go back to camp I have to move
all my goods and chattels over to the 4th Bde
where Charlie is. The 90th Battalion claimed
us over there and I have to leave my nice
job and start out as a common ordinary
private again. I cabled to Alice not to do
any further about coming until she
heard from me again.
I guess there will be a letter or two waiting
for me when I get back and will write you
again from there; at present I remain,
Your very loving Son,
Herb
We took some photos today and will sen you some.
H.
