A LETTER FROM THE FRONT. I ¡ The following letter was received by ¡ T, Dudfey, Barmontb Hotel, from his 1 -?a, Pte. 021757 Harold Dudley, H.Q.I, I C C., Mt. A.S.C., who is with the British Expeditionary Force in North France. North of France, Jan. 8th, 1915. My Dear Dad,—I am delighted to be I)le to sit down and write to you again, i.iid tell you that I received your parcel 1 st night by the 8 80 post. Also two letters dated Dec. 28lb and Jan. 4th. I have also received from Mr J. Jones, The Library, a parcel containing a body beit, mitts and socks—a very acceptable i )t. I am writing to thank him to-night. Now, Dad, you must not be worried at any time if you do not receive a letter for a week or two. We are running up to within three miles of the firing line, then the hoise transports takes the goods right up. The roads aro fearful and full of all kinds of traffic,—fast cars, troops moving up, transports pulled by horses, motors and dogs, guns going up, big and small. So you will see we hardly know when we canfget back to the base. I had my car in the fitting shop for two days, and so I have had a rest. At the base here there are black- smiths, fitters, wheelwrights, and a big shop. It is hard work, but the of all the people -,i-e English, Welsh, Seotts, Irish, Indians, in tact all of them seem to be pos- sessed with the same idea. Nothing is too big or too little if it is for King and country. Tell mother that she must keep her heart up and remember that I am only one of hundreds of thousands, most of whom have a more dangerous job to perform than mine. Send me no food nor matches, but cigarrettes and boots. Well, good-bye, with dearest love to mother and til, HAROLD. ;M-
