NUMBER 7
16-3-43

Still no mail however I hope I’m not in for another long wait for your letters are the chief joys of life here. Rumour has it that we are likely to be moved in the not too distant future. For my part, I shall be sorry, for we are well treated here, the climate is good & the accomodation[sic] quite reasonable even if crude. In addition, a lot of work has gone into organising the camp into its present state of smooth running. The weather so far this month has been gorgeous – today has been almost hot. I’m still tasteless & therefore not touching my precious stock of tobacco. I am trying to get another fiddle instructor but have had no success yet. I wonder if you & Frances could manage a holiday this year. You certainly deserve one. John.
