April 14/44

My dear Joan, I received five letters from you last Monday, the latest one was Feb 3rd, they don’t come along in the order in which they are written, but I dont [sic] suppose mine do. I wrote Bib a card the other day. I have had two letters from him. Have you read any books by Angella [sic] Thirkell, they are good, start with ‘High Rising’. I think you will like them. We have had a lovely spell of weather over Easter, I hope it continues love W.

Kriegsgefangenenlager

My dearest one, I received two letters today one from Bib and one from Bella, both written on Feb 28. Bella tells me we have had a son, I am ever s pleased and quite thrilled about it, I shall be glad when I get some mail from you, I shall really feel that you are all right then. Why is Bella in hospital, surely she hasn’t had a baby as well has she. I must close now. All my love Walter.
