Dear Kath,
You will no doubt be surprised to receive a letter from me after all this long time, but a letter from Barbara concerning some distressing news you had received prompted me to write to you.
I do sincerely hope you will hear good news of Ian in the near future, don’t lose heart Kath, keep on hoping.
So often we hear of boys missing, who are really safe

but news is slow coming thro’ and they are unable to advise their dear ones.
It must be years since we last met, and I believe you now have two sturdy sons to keep you company, they must be a great comfort to you, though at the moment I expect they are more of a worry.
At the moment I’m home on sick-leave, hence the address.
Do let me know as soon as you have any news, I shall be very anxious to know.
Don’t give up hope – I feel sure all will be well.
Much love,
Lena.
