March 14th, 1944. Dearest Mom - the other night rec'd Nov. 25 you, Nov. 13 Jim, Oct 25 Agnes, Oct 25 & Nov 5 Brenda with snaps taken in Ottawa, Nov. 15 from Auntie Mae. Was glad to get snaps as they are first for some time and was pleased to see how well Brenda and Rob are looking. Records from Royal Arcanum arrived, they're very good, tell Jim to thank the lodge very much, Your records are still very popular, when I'm not playing them, someone else is. 900 records and other stuff sent to us rec'd some time ago so we're alright for music, As I said in last letter, I'm not taking any chances so send two sets long combination underwear and two sets pyjamas in next parcel. Things are dead around here now, no sports due to weather and consequently nothing to do but sit in rooms. I'm sure looking forward to the spring, in more ways than one. Jim Olding well and now in this room. How's Cookie? Well so long, love to all three generations, Syd.
