Dearest, We are all settled down now - it is not too bad - we'll survive if rations continue but that is about all.  I have lost a lot of weight - which of course will do me no harm.  We can get 4 cigarettes a day but no liquor of course - all good for us to do without it.  I had a tremendous walk yesterday all round the camp seeing where a few bodies are still left and where others have been buried.  I must write a report today.
I think of you  all the time wondering  where you are and what sort of conditions you are living in.  I wish I knew.  We'll have a lot to talk about when we're all together again.         All my love always     Billie
