Altheim, Germany

Joy at last! Even the “Frankfurter Zeitung” acknowledges that there has been a fight in the North Sea, and that we have sunk German ships, but, of course, it was “overpowering numbers and larger ships” that did it, and the Germans covered themselves with glory as usual. I came home and hung out my flag, the best I could do, a red silk dressing jacket, lined with white, and draped over a blue silk parasol, which I tied knob out, to look like a pole.

On our church door to-day was posted a typewritten notice: “We have smashed your army on the French Continent,(!) and we will smash you too if you dare to ring your bell!”
