24/1/44.

Dear Mr Wilson,

I feel that I must write to express my deep sympathy with you at this time of anxiety.

In some ways yours seems the hardest part – just writing & wondering day by day what has happened.

We all hope that your son is alive & well, though maybe a prisoner-of-war, but it is too early yet for any news to have come through.

In the meantime, in these difficult

[page break]

days of suspense may you be enabled to have a quiet confidence in God, & so know that inward peace that springs from committing ourselves & those we love into His Hands.

My prayers are with you & him.

May God bless you & make His face to shine upon you, & grant to you all needed patience & strength.

Yours very Sincerely,

E.C. Atkins (Padre)
