Title

Postcard from Douglas Hudson to his parents

Description

On the address side a small photograph of a woman in Arab dress exposing a breast. Captioned 'Belle Mauresque'. Hopes they will excuse postcard but he could not get a plain postcard. Catches up on letters sent and received and says he is writing a letter as well to send by airmail. Comments that they have no access to anything like the picture or any other outside entertainment. Exterior walks have stopped and all exercise now in camp.

My Dear Mother & Dad,

I hope you will excuse the pc. It is not sent to be vulgar, but as we cannot send picture pcs & cannot buy plain ones this must suffice. Since writing to you last I have received your letters of the 17th & 1st of January, in that order, also one each from Aunt. Dorothy, Miss Morton & Marjorie. I am writing a letter to you to-day as well by Air Mail. We do not have access to anything, like the picture on this p.c.& do not have any outside entertainment whatsoever. No walks now, all exercise in the camp. I am still keeping well & hope you are also. Keep mailing. All my love, Douglas
