Dear Mum, Dad and All.

This hotel is very luxurious. I am in Compartment 516. Each room has it's own bathroom and lobby. There are two beds in each room. I am sharing this compartment with my pal. The compartment have fitted carpets a very nice corner standardlamp also has beside lamp.

We arrived here at 6.30 L.T. and 2.15 PM G.M.T. We leave again tonight at 8 PM. L.T. Then when we have boarded the aircraft we make for Honolulu.

I am hoping to get some photos while I am here. I hope all of you are keeping O.K. I am very well and are making the most of our trip.

I have written a letter during our flight from Blackbushe to New York. I hope you all can understand it. Would one of you read it to Grandma for me please, as I told her I would let her know how I got on, on the journey out.

How is Granddads leg? Much better I hope.

Well this is all for now as I want to drop Iris a line and we hope to go on a coach sightseeing trip.

So for now from Your loving Son, Grandson and Brother.
