My Dear Mother & Dad,

I have written a letter to you today – via the Swiss Red Cross Geneva, & I am trying a p.c. now via TANGIERS. I suggest you send letters to me by different ways. Some via TANGIERS, some via the Swiss Red Cross & some addressed to me c/o American Consul, Tunis. Make enquiries about Air Mail letters & cables.

I have nothing special to say except that I am keeping well & I sincerely hope you are, & that everything is all right at home. My thoughts are with you always. All my love, Douglas.
