Am now settling down in permanent camp but not yet used to new standard of living. Feeling weak physically, depressed mentally but that will pass. I share a room with three Dutchmen, one of them Hans Lensing has an uncle named Jansen living at Royston, Tenterden Grove. Would you call on him. Wish you could send food but that’s impossible. Always thinking of you and Frances and hoping you are both fit. Yours for always, John
