My Dear Kaye,

In this dark hour, I cannot think of very much to write about, except that you and Penny are as safe as can be expected.
I am ready now, for anything, feeling quite peaceful “inside”.

May God protect you and mine from all the terrors of war.

I also hope that you can find it in

[page break]

your heart to think of me a bit more kindly.

If the worst should ever happen, tell my children that I was one of the first to go. Teach them how to live with all people, and you will sow the seeds of happiness in their hearts.

Goodnight and God bless you and Penny and maybe [underlined] Allison No2. [/underlined] [underlined] Your John [/underlined] xxx
