Been so busy all day. Round the three Coys in a.m., Conference and then to support Coy (‘C’) where Padre had a service, then on to see Cole-Hamilton, and so home. Quiet day after yesterday’s heavy strafing. Shill. and Pratt have been promoted [to major and lieutenant colonel]. Been a very fine bright day, and healthy. We need candles badly now. You might send two chickens some time. No rain since we came into the line, and weather very nice; not cold.
