[page break]

Mother told me how wonderfully well you helped her over he anxious period of waiting. I think this a splendid action of kindness for which I wish to thank you most sincerely & heartily. I know that it won’t be long before we meet again & then I shall have the pleasure of personally thanking you. Since learning that Jim is also a P.O.W. I have been making constant enquiries for news of him from new arrivals. Coincidentally, just some days ago newly commissoned[sic] N.C.Os from Stalag IZB[?] knew of Jim for that is where he is. One particular lad knows Jim quite well. He tells me that they are being well treated there & as usual the Red Cross makes life so much better. I believe Jim is living with Army boys, is looking very well & in the best of health. Unfortunately I cannot correspond with Jim. This news cheered me greatly. Well, Mrs Cahir, I know that the hands are close to 12 o’clock. With the Grace of God we should spend a happy Xmas & I do hope that Jim & I are together, whether it be in England, on the sea, or in good old Aussie. I am most optimistic but preferr[sic] to be that way. My regards to Pat & Vince. I hope that all goes well with them. For now cheerio and all my love and wishes. Yours Des[?]
