We all feel like that every now and again

At the height of World War II on April 6th, 1943, British Ambassador to Moscow, Sir Archibald Clark Kerr, wrote a letter to Foreign Office minister Lord Reginald Pembroke in an effort to simply brighten up his day. We think it helps to read most Fridays to warm the heart when life seems a little bleak in the rain infested Western Cape. Mum, sorry for the language. As the man says - We all feel like that every now and again. We all feel like that every now and again Transcript H.M. EMBASSY MOSCOW Lord Pembroke The Foreign Office London 6th April 1943 My Dear Reggie, In these dark days man tends to look for little shafts of light that spill from Heaven. My days are probably darker than yours, and I need, my God I do, all the light I can get. But I am a decent fellow, and I do not want to be mean and selfish about what little brightness is shed upon me from time to time. So I propose to share with you a tiny flash that has illuminated my sombre life and tell you that God has given me a new Turkish colleague whose card tells me that he is called Mustapha Kunt. We all feel like that, Reggie, now and then, especially when Spring is upon us, but few of us would care to put it on our cards. It takes a Turk to do that. (Signed) Sir Archibald Clerk Kerr, H.M. Ambassador
