My dearest Joan, Hope you are keeping fit and well, I am OK, I received a letter from you on Jan 28/44, it was the first one you had written, I hope to get some more soon, I have nearly worn it out reading it. We have started football again I am playing on Thursday, I'm looking forward to it very much. I think there are some football boots in my trunk, will you send them. All my love Walt

I am quite well and am getting enough food and have plenty of warm clothes. With love Walt.
