Dearest Mother, Just to let you know that am well and happy. At a new camp & am pretty comfortable & well treated so DON’T worry as am perfectly O.K. The Red Cross do us excellently but please send some cigarettes. Hope you all enjoyed your holidays also that the tobacco crop is good. Anthony Parker is O.K. but not with me. Keep Smiling. Love – Donald
