Feb 24/45.

Dear I & W, I hope you are well I am quite fit, I’ve been doing quite a lot of travelling since I wrote last, including a lot of hiking but we seem more or less settled here now for better or worse. I have had one letter from Joan this year shall be glad to hear from all of you, I had to leave all my mail behind, it was a bad blow but I just couldn’t carry it. I haven’t received any cigs for ages hope some come along. lots of love W.
