My dear Mother
Thank you very much indeed for the wool helmet and body protector both very warm and comfortable. Also for the wash cloth which seems startlingly white in this land of mud.
Thank you too for the sweets but where is the licorice? I know that you told Auntie Bar (your sister, you know) that you had sent me some but I have never seen it yet. Half a stick will be plenty & don't cut it up
