My Dear Mother & Dad,
Jack Duffett has just come into my room & says there is a collection at the village ab 3 pm. today so I am giving him this note to post, hoping it will reach you tomorrow. I am writing it in bed, but I shall get up straight away.
I am pleased to be able to tell you that I & the boys are all O.K. I for once am now getting genuinely tired & shall be glad when leave starts. I think it will probably be Tuesday before I can get away.

Would you please ‘phone Alice? I havent [sic] time to write to her now.
All my love & best wishes
Douglas
