Dear Father


Thought I would write again in case you did not receive my previous letter as you would not know what part of the globe to write to.

Pleased to say I am quite well but shall be very glad when it turns warmer; have had several falls of snow since I have been here & the pipes are frozen at present so it is a bit of a job to get a wash.

Cannot stop to write more now. I shall be glad to hear from you.

Hoping you are all in the best of health.


With much love from

Your devoted
