17 Sep 1942, W J Carrie's wartime diary
I was weighed again on the 15th - 134 lbs which is better but I have been terribly "down" the last little while and am also suffering from what I had operated on in Vict. Hosp in Feb 1933. I had a letter from Glover and he can't get in touch with Alice. I'm trying again the International Red Cross. I get so depressed not knowing anything about you - some people here have had news so I hope to hear some time. I'm having a "blood count" tomorrow and if I am really down I may go into hospital for a rest cure! I had my second Cholera injection yesterday - it didn't trouble me.
All my love. Billie
