Inscribed on verso: There is a lot of picturesque material now, in the trenches, but I cannot get around to attend to it. I am
down, sick and helpless with an acute attack of dysentery. It will be weeks before I get out-if I ever do- Firing is constant-
I cannot sleep for it. I send what sketches I have on hand. Will write a letter by next mail. Yrs resfly A.R. Waud alias Tapley.
