My Dear Mother & Dad,

I wrote a letter to you a week ago acknowledging receipt of your cable & I have since received your letter dated Dec. 30th. I am very delighted to learn that you are both keeping well, & am still pleased to say that I am also. We have had some quite good weather lately & I have managed to do a little sunbathing. I only receive about one letter per week from you now so have reason to believe that some must be going astray. I gather that up to Dec. 30th you have received three letters from me. We have got some fresh quarters now & they are a lot better than the old ones which were pretty rough. Dont [sic] bother to send anything out here. The chances of parcels getting through are remote, & there doesn’t appear much you are allowed to send. Cherio [sic] until next Friday’s letter. All my love & may you keep well & strong & in good spirits [underlined] Douglas [/underlined]
