About Letter 172
Bill is back in a warm house "toasting myself by a fire and generally enjoying myself." He apologizes for a 9 day delay between letters saying, "one can't write a letter when he's covered with snow and ice and has a couple of inch thick mittens on his hands." The toasty fire is great but Bill notes that, "the best thing of all is catching up on my sleep. In a foxhole one sleeps 2 hours and then stands guard 2 hours. You know how that works out."
