My Dear Mother & Dad,

This is another letter to let you know that I am still keeping fit & well, and I do hope you are also, and that you are still safe and in good spirits.

I do assure you that I am O.K. and that you have no need to worry, my greatest concern is that you are both well.

It has not been as warm here of late. The autumn is here and I expect that during autumn & winter the weather will be pleasant, but nonetheless I should dearly love a Manchester fog.

I am becoming quite an epicure & I am looking forward to experimenting when I get home. We do a lot [inserted] of cooking [/inserted] for ourselves here & the results turn out very satisfactory. I expect to write again in a fortnight. I am allowed 2 letters & 1 p.c. a month. I have written about 5 so far, I do hope they get through. I shall wish you a Happy Christmas now because this letter may arrive about then. Don’t send me anything. I receive useful items from sympathisers here & altogether we do very well. Occasionally we get the English programmes on the wireless & still read the French Paper. Our football is getting a bit soft. So for the present cheerio. I am always thinking about you. All my love, Douglas.
