Dear Sune,
I got the other day a card dated 12th September from Mr. Valentine, who is in a prison camp in Germany. He writes as follows:
“Your letters of 9th April and 2nd May arrived together. I was delighted to have them so that I could send you my most grateful thanks for the kind gifts of a violin bow and tooth paste. Both reached me some time ago. The bow is excellent and I use it a great deal. It means a lot to me here. I assure you, I appreciate it deeply as well as the tooth paste of which I was greatly in need. Very many thanks for your kindness. I saw Mr. Söderberg a second time (29th May) and asked him if any kind friends could send some violin music – not elementary not yet advanced – something between the two. It may be that the end of the war approaches but if not I should be again most grateful for any help you can give me in that way. With kind regards and renewed thanks.”
I have previously sent him some chocolate, a violin bow, tooth paste and so on, and I will now arrange for some suitable music and some other things to be sent to him so that they if possible could reach him for Christmas. I understand that his parents will be very glad to know that he seems to be well off.
Kindest regards,
Yours sincerely,
(Sgd.) H. Wernekinck
