5th March 1943

Dear Bill, I have just received your letter of the 27th December. I was surprised to see that Betty had changed her work. You must find it very quiet at home now, but I expect you are quite busy with all your activities. I am doing as well as ever and getting some studying done. Much love, Alan.

27th September 1943

Dear Mum, Here’s wishing you all the best for October 20th. I only regret I shall not be at home to celebrate with you. I can only suggest that we have a gigantic celebration when I do get back to cover all the occasions we are missing. What do you think about it? All the best, love, Alan
