My darling Joan, I hope you are quite well, I am keeping OK. I’m afraid I haven’t much news for you, it is rather difficult to think of anything to write about, I am looking forward to receiving some mail, I hope some comes thro' before Christmas. The fellows here are very optimistic, I hope it is justified, hope to see you soon, Love Walter.

We havent [sic] had any skating yet but we all hope to get some in the near future. Hope to hear from you soon. Love Walter.
