Dear Betty:-

Just a little news as it dribbles in. Latest reports say that I will be finished and allowed to leave this service on the 17th. I will go into Paris then see what I am going to do. Have not heard fron Col. Kean yet. The weather here is rotten as we are in the rainy season now. Damp and muddy, occasional rain and no sun. It's cold too and with the dampness it is that much worse. Thank you for your letters.
