Scope and content
Item is a letter from C. Anthony Law to Jane Shaw (later Jane Shaw Law). A transcription reads:
My dear Janie,
You have been so good to me, I will never be able to thank you enough for the marvellous Christmas present. I certainly appreciate your sweet kindness.
I am very sorry to hear that you people have been attack [sic] by those horrible little Japanese, my sincere hopes you destroy them, and have them in such position that they will never be able to lift their horrible yellow head again.
My little ship has been in action a number of times. We all came out on top. At the moment I have spoken of getting leave for Christmas. My crew, and myself need it very badly. We are tired, and need a change of atmosphere.
Life is not very gay anymore, but at sea, yes.
Stuart came down to see me. We had a great celebration, and got very infact [sic] madly gay. The party was the tops. He also came to sea with me. He was slightly wounded in one of his actions in the air, please don’t let my mother ever know this.
I miss you, my love, it looks know [sic] if we won’t see each other for ages, now that the war with Japan and Germany going. It will take a time before things will come to the final end. I wish we could be together for Christmas. Go skiing and parties. Studio [?] once at that.
Well I must end. Wishing both your father and mother and your little one. A very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
I hope your foot [?] is better. I was very sorry to hear of your bad back.
Heaps of Love and Kisses and many thanks again for the glorious Christmas box.
