Many thanks for parcel just received. You can imagine how welcome it was when I tell you there is no chance of buying anything here. I could see that you packed it well, but it was all smashed to atoms; everything was there except the scissors & the biscuits were scattered about so I made short work of the remainder. I cannot write a letter because I can’t get an envelope but will do so at first opportunity.
Glad to say I am quite well . Alf
