My Dear Mother & Dad,
Thank you very much for 3 letters dated 1st. 5th & 8th Dec. received this week, also one from John. This is the only thing I can use as a p.c. I was surprised to hear about Dorothy. I am very glad to receive all your letters. Write by air mail also, it only takes 3 weeks. It is good to hear that all is O.K. at home, & I hope it won’t be too long before we are together again. I am still keeping well & am looking forward to the days of freedom. Every best wish for Mother’s birthday on Sunday. Hope everything will continue well.
All my love, Douglas.
