Dear All,


It may be late when it gets to you, but it's in time this end - so a Happy Easter! Not like Easter here - working on Friday, half day yesterday. Mon. off. Spring cleaned camp this morning, football after dinner and just had service with Easter hymns - I read lesson- Matt. 28. No letters since last letter to you. Was lovely here all week - dull today. Love to everybody, Eric
