The rain still continues, I wonder how John

liked the Bombay Course. I know several who

have been there + they seem to have had a

good time. Sorry I didn't say anything

about the lamp - any kind will do. We

have managed much better for light lately

as we found an oil lamp or two which so

far we have managed to cart round without

breaking. We can get parafin as an issue

Phillips went to Hospital sick about a fortnight

ago + I hear he is going to England - sick leave

I think. Yes the CO keeps pretty fit

Yes I think you will find plenty to

do when you get to Grantham. I do hope

you will have a good time + not be

lonely. Don't let the electric people

worry you - we are clear as far as they

are concerned whatever they put on the

bill. I hope you had a real good

time at Headingly. Hope the snaps

will come out well. Glad Kenneth

took to the big bed so well this

time. Fancy him weighing 2 stone. He
