We look for a letter every post but shall not give up hope and dont [sic] you. They returned my letter a week ago but no news in it. Glad to say Aunt is a good bit better, and plenty of work. Hope Peter is settling down and getting used to his new surrounding I'm not looking forward to the blackout and I am sure youre [sic] not, and its not been much of a summer has it
