Dearest Emmie

In answer to yours of the 24th inst I hadn’t time to answer it before the post went so I sent you a field-card. It’s a bad thing to catch a cold in a hollow gum. I guess you knew it some what at any rate I sincerely hope it’s better now. I nearly had the flue, but counter attacked it with two successive forces of hot milk. It is also very showey here and it flops down too. I ask the cause of a double rainbow, of one of the boys and he suggests taking a little more water with of course I point out that that couldn’t be the case. I have seen a similar scene and I think it is a reflection on a mist. I am going to have my photo taken next week if possible so you will see if I have altered much. I don’t know where I will be on Bank Holiday Monday I might be in Blighty or anywhere. I don’t even know what’s happening this afternoon. I hear we are having a change in Colonel so a lot may happen in a week. In answer to your first question. “C” can have three names:- B♯. C. D𝄫. Therefore C, C♯, D have each three names and so has D♯ if you are going to write “D♭x”, D♯, E♯. I don’t think you would find D♭x written in music.

I think that all the other notes except D♯ G♯ and A♯ have three names but these three have only two each. Another way of giving them these is:- (D𝄯♯ D♯ G♭) (G𝄯♯ G♯ A♭) (A𝄯♯ A♯ B♭). I hope you understand that half of the question. These changes are enharmonic. I think that is right but it was a teaser.

Q.A major scale consists of tone, tone semitone tone tone semitone.

Longest note is not a semi=half breve but a breve.

Shortest note is not a 𝅘𝅥𝅰 but a 𝅘𝅥𝅲 (128th note).

I understand your 5th ans. but 1/8 is an octave from C to G is a second.

I hope you understand all this
