My Dear Mother & Dad,
I was very pleased to receive your letter dated 6-11-40 & one from Auntie Gladys dated 17-11-40, & to learn that you are all keeping well. I hope you had a happy Christmas.
I did very well under the circumstances & had plenty to eat. Please thank all the people who have enquired about me, because I am not permitted to write more than 2 letters & 4 p.cs. per month. I have written a letter to you today as well. Looking forward to all your further news.
Best wishes for the New Year & Mothers birthday. All my love, Douglas.
