5Dear Fan

7I am thinking all the time of you & Will. You will I know write & send
8me a wire as soon as you have any news. Perhaps you know just where
9the boy is; I have no idea. He told me in his letters he was going
10back to the Trenches on Saturday. ?So whatever ?hot places he may
11?go is safe now.

13One doesn’t know what to believe in the papers & what not. It may be
14a new Neuw Chappel, but we shall not know the truth for a long time. I
15am glad Will & you are together.
