Dearest, I haven't written for 10 days or so but I've no news of any kind - the whole camp is rather depressed these days. Some more letters came in recently but none later than 31/1/43 which I received over a month ago. I've had nothing since - a whole month with no word. I keep more optimistic - I am sure the women will be away by the beginning of December and perhaps everybody by the end of January. The war news is good and cheering. I am sure there is a lot we never hear at all. I had a blood count on Saturday - down a bit but perhaps it's only Begbie's different technique - Greaves - got off as a Canadian. So I had another injection today. CheerO Darling - I wish I knew how you all are and how you spent the summer. All my love. Billie. Food has been a bit better but we are on a very low scale.
