My dear Mrs Riding

Please accept my deepest sympathy in this trying hour.

I am deeply grateful that you have written & told me. I do hope & expect that you will hear favourable news, though of course as you no doubt know & expect it will take a long while before you hear anything.

It came as rather a shock to me mainly because Ron and I were such good friends. I have his Photo in [deleted word] the few I brought out with me. One I took of hm at Greenwood threatening him with a snowball.

I'm keeping quite fit out here considering except for one or two minor risks. Fortunately for us we only have the weather to contend with & that is a lot to be
