341 High St.,
Lincs. 31.12.42.

Dear Mr. Moth,

I hardly know how to begin this letter, but first of all, let me thank you for writing. I cant [sic] express my feelings in words at this moment, I am so terribly sorry for poor Winnie, and all dear Harry’s relations. What an awful shock it was, I cant [sic] get over it, really. Will you please convey my deepest sympathy to Winnie, may God bless her & help her to bear her sorrow. Tell her not to worry about thanking me for anything, I was only too pleased to help, it was so nice of her to even think of me when she was in so much trouble. I only wish I could do something now, I would spare nothing, but I am afraid it must be left to time, which heals all wounds. She wont [sic] be able to realise

that at the moment, we know, no-one would, but I pray that she will be given strength to carry on bravely for darling Pamela’s sake.

I should very much have liked to have sent a token of remembrance to dear Harry, but I didn’t have time to wire a wreath as your letter didn’t reach me until Wednesday morning. However, my thoughts were with you all. Well, I dont [sic] think I can say any more just now, if Winnie feels like writing later on I shall be pleased. I dont [sic] expect it now. I know you will look after her, & I will never forget her in my prayers. Giver her my love, all my best wishes to you,

Yours very sincerely,

[underlined] Doris. [/underlined]
