V-Mail

Dear Mom,

Your letter of the 21st came yesterday. Many thanks. We are on the move again and doing all right.

The complacency of the civilians still astounds me. The other day during lulls in a terrific shelling, a woman came out to the place where I had my phone to feed her rabbit which was huddled in a kind of stupor in its cage. She put in a plate of meal and some leaves of lettuce. The animal finally nibbled a piece of the lettuce and retreated to its corner, watching us worriedly.

I was interrupted in the middle of a note to Aunt Lil from where I last wrote you, but will try to get off a note today.

We had a brief intermission and I managed to take a basin bath. The absence of any kind of bath facilities in French homes is a surprise.

Love,

Bob
