For the last two days we have been in the midst of a beautiful winter scenery. I never was so cold in Canada, as I was here to-day, snow and cold wind all day. They tell me it’s all part of my training.
Now regarding correspondonce I bet I have written you 20 letters, since dec 15th and all I had from you is one, written about dec 10.
Have you got no ink or pen.
I am writing often, cause I can do it here after my evening formal dinner. Please write & tell me all.
Lots of love
