My Own Darling Marion,

       We are enjoying another

lovely hot sunny day and as

I have not had much work

to do I have been in the open

air most of the day. I meant to

have written to you this afternoon

but got talking with Knox

+ Hall + tea time came before

I expected it. I had arranged

to go out after tea to do a

little reconnoitering with my

two subs so I am afraid you

will only get a short note

again. I am still very fit

+ well - getting tanned by the

sun. This is much better

than living in the bowels

of the earth.

    I hear that food parcels 

are to be stopped but don't know
