My Dear Mother & Dad

In the post script of my last Friday’s letter I hurriedly acknowledged receipt of your letters dated Jan. 26th & 27th & Feb. 4th & 6th from which I was so glad to learn that you were keeping well & that my [indecipherable word] had come through. I have since received your letter dated Feb. 20th which came by Ordinary Mail, not be air mail because you did not put the Blue A.M. stamp on it also your cable dated April 3rd giving your latest address. I do hope that everything will now go along more smoothly. Air Mail letters save 2 to 3 weeks in time provided you put on the envelope “BY AIR MAIL” & the blue
