My dear Ma & Junie;

Believe it or not, I am sitting in bed, what a relief; My doctor has just [??] it and I am doing fine, will be up on a rolling chair by Jan 15 and walking around by Feb’y 1st.

At that rate I ought to be home by Easter.

I am so relieved at feeling like myself again.

I see by the morning papers Lord Halifax is our new Minister in U.S.A.  He is a great man and a great Diplomat.  May be a bit soft, on the fighting side; however he’ll do.

My friend Mr Eden has taken another high post. But we sure hate to loose him as War Minister, he was a hony.  Before I leave for home I will call on him, to see what I can do for his dep’t in America, “Foreign Affairs”.  Don’t worry I’ll get something soft somewhere.

I will also see Beaverbrook “Max Aitken” one of our Canuck.  I am in great spirit today.  More & more gifts are pouring in from my friends here.

Will try and be cheerful for Xmas, in two days. – but miss you all a lot.

Now don’t worry about me.  I’ll not be evacuated till they’re positive I can make the trip, and a reliable boat.

Got a nice letter from Nellie yesterday, also 2 from Junie.

Will write often

Lots of love
