My dear Mother.
Very many thanks for your letters. So sorry I never wrote last mail but I was away in Shillong & missed the day. I had quite a nice time there only things were very quiet of course on account of the war.
Ben wrote me that she is still stuck at Karachi but I expect by this time she has started. She will be glad when she is once at home as I fancy the journey will be fairly uncomfortable.
I must catch the post. I only arrived back yesterday. I hope Sonnie Gabb will be all right.
Best love to all
yr loving son Richard.
Please thank Jane for the songs & her letter.
