My dear Mum,

Thanks for your letter 3rd June received last Saturday and am so glad Evelyn liked the parcels. I have been extremely busy lately, at present am in the midst of my 6th week exams, and will be delving into Meteology [sic] as soon as I finish this. Things are really moving now, another 4 weeks will be our mid-term exams and then exams practically every week after until I graduate – the finals commencing on the 14th week, so you must excuse me if I am a little late in answering your mail. Thank Dennis for his letters, I will write to him as soon as I can. By the way Bill was enquiring about a jacket so when you write, let me know his measurement across the shoulders. You needn’t worry about the cost of the things I send you. – You can save it up for me when I come home. Continuing 27th. Received your letter 14th, coming all the way without a stamp – yes I am spending most of my week-ends at the girl friends and appreciate their hospitality. Do you think it is worth it to send me my camera, as the one I have now is only a box one, very cumbersome. Heard the results of the exam today and I passed in every subject an average of 80 percent in each, so I hope to do as well in the others to come. Well mum, must close now, hoping you are all well and having good weather, it has been up to 90 degrees out here. All my love Reg xxxx

To Evelyn xxxxx
