Transcription

20th July 1943.

[one indecipherable word] very cheered to have your 62 & 13th July – opening paragraph of former heavily censored. Photos don’t in the slighted add to censorship delays. Many thanks for sending off music I need it badly now & am very short of strings. Could you please send at least 6 “A”strings – one only lasts me a month & the camp is very short of them. I loved your description of Frances, her ways & progress & send more anytime. [censored sentence] I believe I asked for a metal tea pot – please don’t bother now – we don’t cook our own food as before. [censored sentence]

Love ever yours John.
