Another sunny cold day and hard frost. Pratt will be in command of 109th [Brigade] when he returns. Q.R. goes on leave at once. We are in a brick building fortunately, but the huts are perishing, and the line damnable. Bde. went in Sat., so you can calculate when 9th go in. Luckily there is no snow on the roads, which are as hard as iron and dusty, but snow lies on the fields. Went and saw 9th this a.m. and transport. There is a good deal of mange about. We have none so far. Your letters now come in 48 hours!
