My Dear Mother & Dad,

I have written a letter to you today acknowledging receipt of nine letters from you dated Nov 7th to Nov 27th in sequence, & seven others from Calverley & Bury & Prestwick. No need to say how pleased I am. Keep it up please, & [underlined] do [/underlined] write by Air Mail it is much quicker (takes 3 weeks only) I cannot write to other people, but do appreciate their kindness.

The country is much greener now after the snow & there are no flies or insects. In fact it is very pleasant. Under normal conditions life out here for English people would be quite good. One gets used to the different food. And now cheerio, hope you are both keeping well. Best wishes for the 19th.
All my love Douglas
