Dear Mother

V. many thanks for your letter – I expect by now you have got my letter telling you how it was I had’nt written. We are in harbour again now – & have received a batch of mails.

They have postponed our sports – but they are to take place as soon as possible – so I shan’t have much time to do any training – because I have’nt had a run since the end of last month nearly-

So glad you have had a day in London-

I am writing in a minute to Gieve’s about my chest – I have’nt had a chance till now – I can never write any letters at sea.

That friend of Jim’s who sent him some cigarettes has just sent me some – she must be rather a nice person I should think. I am awfully well and fit & hope you have not been worrying about my not writing.

With best love to you all-

from ever your loving son
