Thursday evening. Could I procure your sleeping berth for you, when I get mine, and so save your having to come and do it? I could get two lower berths opposite each other. Let me know if you would like me to do this.I am glad you feel like going down with me. You are a valliant soldier!AffectionatelyyoursKatharine Hooker
