We have arrived in harbour again after a longish trip from our last Place. Boiling hot where we are now and it’s a place I’ve never been to before. I’ve been ashore twice & had some tennis & to-day we have a cricket match
I met Dr Hill yesterday – he’s Digby’s great friend & was at Barts with Dick – he asked after all of you.
I find it very difficult to write letters when we get no mails – so you must excuse a short letter.
Hope you are all very well at home. I am still quite fit & much prefer this hot weather. Does’nt look as if we should get a mail for 2 or 3 months, as a ship here has only just got her Christmas letters!!
With ever so much love from
ever your loving son
