6 Dear Mr Kallenbach

8 I am so glad to hear you are going to be exchanged. When will you be
9at Stratford? Is it Stratford on Avon? Are you not coming nearer to
10London where I might see you?

12 The little parcel you mention has not arrived. But I thank you from my
13heart for the kind thought of me. I suppose they have miscarried in
14the post. I am living here in a big boarding house. I long to see
15South Africa but I am getting worse, & not better. The Alexander's are
16well. I heard from her lately. Remember my permanent address is c/o
17Standard Bank 10 Clements Lane.

19 My nephew who was wounded is back in England. His right elbow was
20blown away & he will never have the use of his arm again. He has been
21given the Military Cross for leading his men on & taking two positions
22after he was wounded. He has also won a fellowship at Trinity College
23Cambridge.

25 Good bye dear friend. May all good attend you
