February 14th
Dear All Since last I wrote I have received 13 Pamphlets on Flour Milling and so am settling down to it am still waiting for the 2 Vols on Flour Milling Tec which should arrive in the next month or two—Before I forget it next parcel please include sun glasses another pair of shoes & gym shoes. I am taking up fencing. You asked if we had many nationalities here, well all the Dominions are well represented and also French, Poles, Czechs & Norwegians who were flying for the R.A.F. We have some very interesting lectures on different parts of the world and on peoples' different careers such as farming in Australia, South Africa, Fiji Islands, The Argentine etc. on Art and Whale Fishing in the Antartic. Also we had a very interesting lecture by a Canadian who has lived many years in a Hudson Bay Trading Post with the Eskimos in Hudson Bay itself. It has been snowing quite a lot here this last fortnight but today there has been a rapid thaw and it is very sticky under foot. Thanks for your combined letter of 25th Dec.
All my love
John
