Dear Kenneth,

             Mummy will have to read

this letter to you but it is

really yours to thank you for

that lovely parcel you sent.

I don't know how you managed

it but you sent just the

things that I wanted. I am

having a very good time now

right behind the line, where

war seems a very peaceful game.

The weather is delightful and it

is a real treat to be living

above ground instead of a

hole in the earth. My present

home is a very funny little 

house. From the side it looks 

just like a small mound

of earth. From the front

you can just see the top

of the door + the stove pipe
