June 18th 1944
Dear All Well here we are again still in the same room but we have 2 newcomers messing with us they are a Church of England Padre & Methodist Padre both very fine men and we are very lucky to have them with us charming and intellectual men they help us and the whole camp to keep up our morale—The Methodist Minister is a very interesting man. A Doctor of Psychology and has lived with his wife and daughter as a missionary in China on which he has given some very interesting lectures to the camp—he also runs a series of lectures on Christian Philosophy which are also very interesting. He has written a book which has been published I don't know the name off hand but will let you know. He has also just finished another while he has been in “The Bag” on Christian Philosophy. His name is Rev Thomson. The other Padre is new and we know very little about him. He is younger and different as chalk to cheese to the other Padre
All my Love
