‘Dear Canning, There are rumours the Australians are having a rest; we hope you are one of them. And yet I wish their sweethearts were there to look after them. Do you remember Xavier de Maistre’s ""Voyage autour de ma Chambre"", and his comments on la vie. The flesh and the devil take a little struggling with, but I will not believe that our men cannot overcome both, even though they (in flesh etc) are as bad as the Germans. To turn to an everyday subject this afternoon Miss George, once head of Advanced School of Girls, gave a tea-party to the teachers of M.L.C.[Methodist Ladies" College], her last school on her retirement. Miss George looked like Betsy Trotwood [fictional character from Charles Dickens" 1850 novel ""David Copperfield""], and the rest looked like – teachers ... Also I yearn for some English-made boots. ""The Bulletin"" may say what it pleases [protection of Australian industries from overseas imports], Australian-made Protected shoes are dear & nasty & let in the wet ... I wonder if political ideas change much at the Front? Some of the letters published in the papers as coming from there strike one as being written by exactly the same Pro Bono Publico and Pater Familias we knew of yore. Not much war (or other) new literature comes my way, but “the Confessions of a Soldier”, if as honest and complete as Rousseau’s, ought to be enlightening if someone would write it. Potboundness is the trouble with most of us, and anything that cracks out old pot and forces us to get another or, better, anything that stretches our present life, is good. Goodnight, Dear Old Boy. Love From Elizabeth.’
