17 Jan. 41.
Well I was up on the chair twice yesterday; 15 minutes in the morning and 30 min in the afternoon. Got away with it fine. Felt a bit tired, but slept one hour before supper -
I can now stand on my thin legs, and took four steps yesterday. My weight is now down to 180 lbs from 209 when I took sick.
Since I am not getting any mail from you, you must be all sick, or there’s no more boats left carrying mail.
Hope you got my cable of yesterday. Happy birthday to you darling, and tell you now, will be home on your next one.
The weather has turned cold again, but manage to keep warm in here -
Do write, or cable, etc.
Lots of love
