Dear Dad and Mam

Just a line to let you know that I am in the pink hope you are all the same. You must excuse this scribble as I am writing this all of a hurry skurry as the mail is going out at 2-30, it is now twelve and the letter has to be censored. I received a letter from Auntie Annie last mail but did not get one from you more luck next time I hope. I am very busy these days with one thing and another will have time to write you a decent letter in a day or two. I have not received the parcel that Jon sent me on June 21 but am expecting it every mail. We are having very hot weather but will get it hotter later on. I must congratulate Mailys on her success in the Sunday School Exam, she is getting quite a fagger, tell her to mind she does not get grey headed with studying and a very bad thing indeed it is for me. How is Dyfan getting on? Hope he is alright. I am going to write to Auntie later. How is Jon and Mag getting on hope they are in the best of health. Lewis Morgan in the best of health tell his mother so. I must close now with the best of good wishes and love to you all.

I am

Your loving Son
