20 Jul 1943, W J Carrie's wartime diary
I didn't write on on Sunday. I was a bit depressed and I'm not much better today. I have read over your letters again - I don't know when you'd get the first letter from me but there is a wide gap till the second and D.O.K. when that will reach you. I know you will be worried and depressed too but you have a lot to occupy your mind and you will have energy too if you are getting fairly normal food. It's awful to be continually hungry and then to have no energy to do anything. Nobody is really normal in the Camp and I foresee all sorts of ructions soon if things don't improve. Hope of release is rather slender these days but I hope on. I think we'll get some money soon which will help - I have one yen and 13 sen today and I've borrowed 60 from Dora. I can't ask her for any more yet.
Goodnight L.O. I'm no sae bad but I micht be worse! B.B.
