That is anyone that has a barn or stable well so many soldiers are told off to sleep there Well father this is hardly worth sending but I will find out later what we are allow to write shall do better then dont want to have the letter burnt have to close Hoping all are well am O.K myself & feel fit for what ever there is ahead. Will write the Miss Smiths later. Love to all
Your sincere son
