I shall be most interested in hearing the latest re the garden and especially about David and Dorothy. It will give me real pleasure to send David picture books and I won’t forget him when I ever get home.

Any information you may ever want be sure and write. I know how interested you are in the war.

We are allowed biaziers here (coke and charcoal and a little dry wood) and so can make tea - black tea - in our black dixeys is quite a luxury here. In Cowper’s fine words “With the cups that cheer but not inebriate, so let us welcome peaceful evening in" (another neglected Post!).

With love to Jess, David & Dorothy and cheero to self.
