Cold, I slept soundly all night. Have our coffee and a few uncooked oats in bed this morning. Lie in till dinner. Soup good, we got buckshees, too. We get an extra long ration of sausage this afternoon; have quite a good tea with our fifth of a loaf and drink of tea. English, American, Russian and German ambassadors supposed to be in London discussing the finishing of the war. News expected in two days.Every one all talking, this war has to end some day. It will be hard to beleive when it is finished. We are all three in fairly good health. Tom has a few bites, but they're healthy?
