My Dear Mother & Dad
I have not received any letters from you since I wrote my letter last week, acknowledging your Air Mail letter of Feb. 20th & ordinary letter of Feb 2nd. Air Mail is the thing if you can manage it. I send my letters to you by Air Mail now; hope they get through quicker. I also hope you are settling down at your new home & wish Dad a lot better luck for the days to come. I was very sorry to hear what had happened & realise what it must have been like for you both. it has been wet here recently. We get occasional very warm days and then a number of cold ones, the weather is far
