Dear Douglas,
Here I am at last hope you got Xmas card alright. Well my Dear I was awfully pleased to get your mothers letter after having the one that you were missing.

Well in health and otherwise I was very sorry for your mother and father but they are both in better spirits now. I hope you will excuse me being so long in writing to you. I thought maybe I would get a letter from you first. Beamar is just the same billets for the R.A.F. boys there is a course finished just now they left here Saturday for some where. So I have no one meantime. Mr Danks left 10 months ago I miss him very much but he had to go his business had a call on him. So I have no one in his place. The Greens are still here they have a little baby Girl now. I suppose you will never have had any word of Robert at all. I had one of the lads visiting me one who was before you he is well in the midst of things he was on 7 days leave.
You will be missing all the cold weather snow and ice and frost and rain. It will be quite summer where you are. I suppose it will be Christmas and New Year with you all the same. I would have sent you some little thing but wont know what to send or do but when you write you might please let me know if I can send you anything I will be only too pleased to do it.

Well Douglas I dont think I can say much more I know you wont have much time for writing but whenever you can I will be so pleased to have a note from you. Trusting you are in good health and spirits wishing you all the best of the season. Love and all good wishes from [underlined] J.B. Morton [/underlined]
