My Dearest Mother, Received four letters from you this month – the last 7TH January. Am glad you managed to have some sort of reunion at Xmas – what a crowd there’ll be when we all get together, but no doubt Harrys house can cope with the overflow. How is young Donald John getting along. I expect its difficult to get snaps now but hope youll [sic] send me some. Your loving son Donald
