My dear George, You are Mercy are always in my mind. This is just a brief note to wish you a happy Christmas. I'll write you a proper letter very soon, but meanwhile I'll just say that this has been a great translation of ourselves and we're all very happy about it. The weather here is like a warm English summer day. The mountains, tawny-gold, are fantastically lovely. I enclose 15 dollars in lieu of a Xmas gift. As the Danish saying goes - “When it rains on the forest it drips on the verges”. This place has been very good to me. I can't yet get over the recurring miracle of being paid regular money for talking! Do write to me, George, and tell me how things go with you both, and give my regards to all my good friends in Belfast. Would you ever write me out the words of the Skins' regimental song? Love from us all Yours ever Bertie
