Dear Mr Matthews,
Thank you very much indeed for your very kind lines. In reply I can only say how proud I was to have John in my crew and I am looking forward to flying with him again when he returns from his

sick-leave.
Your son, just like the rest of us in the crew, did his utmost and made our safe return possible. Fortunately his injuries were not of a very serious nature and he was able to render some most valuable assistance without which I think our return would have been very doubtful.

I went to collect him from the

hospital last Sunday, and I believe he is with you when this reaches you. Please give him my kind regards + tell him I am looking forward to seeing him back again fighting fit.
With my best wishes, I remain,
Yours sincerely,
Peter Stevens.
