DEAR KENNETH

             THANK YOU VERY MUCH

FOR YOUR LETTER. MAMMY TELLS

ME SO MANY GOOD THINGS ABOUT YOU

THAT I REALLY MUST COM HOME TO

HAVE A ROMP AND PLAY WITH YOU.

               MY SOLDIERS ARE ALL

VERY WELL BUT THEY HAVE BEEN

AWAY FROM HOME SO LONG THAT

THEY ALL TELL ME THEY WOULD LIKE

TO GO HOME FOR A FEW DAYS.

               HOLMES AND UNDERWOOD

SOMETIMES ASK HOW YOU ARE. YOU

STILL REMEMBER THEM I HEAR

            DADDY IS NOT LIVING IN

A HOUSE NOW BUT UNDER THE TREES

IN A WOOD AND I GO TO BED IN A

BIG HOLE IN THE GROUND.

             YOU MUST TELL MAMMY
