Dear Isabel,
We have been here more than a week now and we are well settled into the routine of the camp. Everybody is naturally looking forward to their first mail which we hope to get in about a fortnight. I have taken a number of photographs which I shall send on as soon as soon as I can get them developed. Jack, Calem, and I had a grand weekend in Jo’burg last weekend for there are plenty very good facilities for the Services. It only takes us an hour by electric train. I managed to find a Presbyterian Church and attended the morning service which I found very stimulating. Jack and I this week on our late pass night spent it in Pretoria, this being another new experience for us. I have written a letter this week (10) telling you much more about these trips. I have not heard from your cousin yet. I asked him to write to me even though he found himself unable to meet me in Jo’burg. I suppose you will be interested to know that Bodo is not with me now but you will find more details of this also in the letter. I am continuing in the best of health and hope you are doing likewise. Could you let me know how Tommy gets on in his exams? I hope he does well. Yours, Andy.
