Summary

This letter was sent November 27, 1914, to Edith Bratt, and told about his (according to him) somewhat boring day drilling and attending classes. Near the end, however, he remarks: "There was a bad paper but an interesting discussion. It was also composition meeting and I read 'Earendel' which was well criticised."
