I've been wondering if I have ever sent my compliments and congratulations on your Moulton record. If I haven't it wasn't for lack of intention to do so. But I find very often, in the more or less disordered life out here, that it is difficult to differentiate the intention and the act; and I have several times discovered that I have made confusion of the two, and so left undone those things which I ought to have done in the epistolary line. Let this make amends if I have erred in your case.
Your letter of March 1 came duly to hand. I'm so glad you've had a good winter's skating. I fear me I shall have to put in some practice when
Trotter, Bernard Freeman, Letter, 29 March 1917
