HAD A FEW MORE CASUALTIES

But Hoping For A Rest

J. Diamond, 11th Border, who does not give his rank, writing on January 30th says:

Dear Sir,

I am pleased to say I received your parcel of cigarettes and twist whilst in the trenches last week, and I desire to thank you and your readers for the kindness in sending out to us smokes. I need not tell you how much they are appreciated by all the boys out here. We have had a few more casualties during the past week, so we hope for the best when we go in again.
