    Dear Mamma,

    Many thanks for your letter. We were very pleased to see you. Not to worry about the camera. We shall get one sometime.

    Please send us some CREST toothpaste. Thomas likes it and it is good for him. It is the only toothpaste he likes. The others are too powerfull tasting for him. We have run out. I did not buy enough.

    I take size 16 by 32 shirts. I depend on you for my shirts. The tails are too short but the collars are nice. There are no sleeve length variations on English shirts.

    The house across the street has finally been sold, I am trying fairly hard to find a house. It cannot go on.
