Nicks last letter must have been running late as I now have his 5th letter
Nick says all thought its getting warmer in Japan at this time it is still
very cold in Fuchu.
I had asked Nick about TV and Radio and he says that he has Radio on
Saturday and Sunday afternoon and evening mainly chart music. Monday and
Friday is just American news and politics. TV is for 1 hour 50 mins
Tuesday evening and a movie Thursday night and Sunday morning, Nick says
this can make you feel almost human, although he is dissappointed that
they will not get to watch the Winter Olympics.
Nick appeared quite concerned about his future and is still keen to get
text books on plumbing, he worries that his future is very bleak and will
need to learn new skills if he is to have any hope of working again after
this is over.
Nicks work continues in the factory but work is sometimes short, prisoners
appear to be feed on the work they do, so if their working day is short
then their food is reduced!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Prisoners are not allowed to
buy any extra food in Fuchu. Has I've said before I am concerned about
prisoners weight loss.
At this time Nicks asthma is still a problem he as a virus with the cold
and unhealthy living conditions.
Nick was not allowed the thermals bought for him and he tried to orders
some but was told, by the time you get them winter will be over. He did
manage to get some warmer socks.
He has received some more of his personal books which he said were much
Nick had been to mass and seen the father which Im sure will have help Nick.
He had also had a visit from his Lawyer he said it was good to see a
friendly smiling face.
Has always Nick misses his son so very much and Nick had sent him a short
letter with mine.
He send his best wishes to you all and thanks you for your continued support.
Nicks letter was much shorter this time.
With the winter sport and commonwealth games I know Nick would love
anynews papers that cover this, so if anyone can send him one from any
where I know he would appreciate them.
Thank you all
