surrender seems to be moving along 

quickly now & Christmas will soon

be with us. What a pity I shall

not be able to be with you to

fill Kenneth's stocking. Still I

expect you will do it very

well for both of us. I should

love to be with you but must 

hope it will be possible by the 

time next Christmas is here. It

does seem such a long time since

I was with you - chiefly I suppose

because we have been so

unsettled. I haven't heard from

the CO or the others in England

for some time. I am glad the

new fire place is a success.

Won't it be nice to sit & toast

ourselves by it. What does Kenneth
