Dear mummy and papa, I am quite well and I hope you are okay too; we arrived late Tuesday night and were taken into a hall. The journey was very arduous we were with many other children in the train, getting pushed about, but despite this me and Mary, James and Oliver managed to stay together.

Oh and mama, papa guess what, we saw James and Oliver at school, they looked quite happy and were smartly dressed.
