Scope and content

Item is a letter from C. Anthony Law to Jane Shaw (later Jane Shaw Law). A transcription reads:

M.T.B. 48
c/o G.P.O

My dear Jane,

I haven’t written for ages—just been feeling in no mood. Christmas was a very sad day for me. My first Lieutenant Peter Armstrong died from a fatal fall from the Deck [Dock?]. He was a great friend of mine, and a great loss to me. Also other friends of mine are missing. Life just isn’t as cheerful as it was.

However, Jane dear I must forget, because those things will often happen in war.

Jane sweet you have been terribly good to me—I [love?] the glorious gay Christmas box from you it was sweet of you. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate your [kindest?]. Also the Art magazines. The [uncertain words?] a very kind little [thought?]. I loved it.

My love I might have hopes of coming to Canada sometime in June, but don’t count on it. As things are too grave to take leave as you wish, but I have hopes.

Again Janie thanks for the lovely gay presents. I love everyone of them.

Give my kindest regards to your mother and father. I do hope they are in the best of health.

I love you Jane and wish I could be with you. Life would be much more happier.

Heaps of love and Kisses from your skipper,
