Dear Kay,
I was delighted to receive your first three letters, bodily I am quite fit but mentally, well, you can appreciate my sentiments in confinement to be with my kin. Who married June, afraid it was censored. Would you like to be my “pin-up girl” here, you will have to send your photo. Your letters certainly would not be boring being one of our only links with home. I will write you a letter when available. Regards to your family, Lots of love, Jerry xxx
