Thank you for the tins of food you sent. They didn't half make me popular with the lads here. I'm getting along quite well but as always I miss you all terribly. I read little Tommy's letter and wished I could have been there with you. You must have been so scared when those bombs started falling. Of course, Tommy thinks the zepps are the most exciting thing ever to happen to London, but you must make sure he doesn't try to leave the house and get a better view of them if they ever come your way again, which I hope and pray they don't. The weather here is getting better every day.
Your loving son, Jeremy.
