‘They make fun…

                                ‘They make fun of me for the number of packages I receive!’

‘Dear Ma – Yesterday chocolate and flypaper
arrived and today milk! Condensed milk really isn’t so very necessary as we get
that from the section. Another shell just fell and I
will write again soon. I am feeling fine except occasionally when the section teases me for the number of packages I receive. However, they are all glad enough
to eat the contents!’
