Dear F & R--
One more week to go
& we return home. It
has been pleasant, but a
bit tiring since we have
jumped to High Wycombe,
back to London, & now Oxford.
We return to London Mon.
There's a lot of material here--
More than we can possibly
cover. We hope everything
has you well at home.

Lady on the White Horse, Banbury.

Ride a cock horse to Banbury Cross,
To see a fine lady on a white horse,
With rings on her fingers and bells on her toes,
She shall have music wherever she goes.

Dear "Doc"
There is quite a difference
in being a buck private and
then getting up in the world
when you get saluted instead
of being the saluter. This is
a very nice post and I can't
get over how lucky I was to
be stationed here. Wish you could
see the place. Give your better
half my regards and also
your youngest daughter.

of water makes the plunge of eighty-five feet.
