My darling,

Received several letters today which I was glad to get. One of them was from you and was written the 21st of Jan. One was from Mamma and one from a former patient of mine.

Still haven’t a great deal to do on the ward around now but I manage to keep myself occupied. Usually we play volleyball in the afternoon in order to get our exercises.

The news continues to sound good. Certainly hope that it will continue as such.

Hope you like your new work.

Love always,
“Boobie”
