Dear Madam,

re: [underlined] Sgt. James Douglas Hudson [/underlined]

We have been handed your letter of April 9th addressed to 14, Finsbury Circus, and are sorry to tell you that it is not possible to send chocolate to your son in Le Kef. There is no parcel post to Tunisia, and the men there are regarded not as prisoners of war but as internees in unoccupied French territory.

We hope that this will not be a great disappointment to you, but would like to tell you that you can write or telegraph to your son whenever you wish, by the ordinary postal service; we believe you have already been told that the best way to communicate with him is care of the U.S. Consul in Tunis.

Yours faithfully,

[signature]

for S.J.Warner.
