wet day. Fortunately the farmers about here have most of their crops off & their hay stacked. The potatoes are still in the field & many of them are rotting on account of so much wet weather War matters are hopeful on the Italian front where nearly 20,000 austrians have been captured since the first attack The French also continue & Lens is being slowly invested. It looks as if the Ypres offensive will be held up & will not accomplish all that was expected, but one never knows.
