In this letter to his family, Winnicott describes the fun and games enjoyed with his fellow students in his own rooms, probably at Jesus College Cambridge, and the items, books and objects he has around him. He ends by saying, ‘Life is very sweet. Who would think of war to hear me talking. And yet I may as well enjoy myself, even in war time’.
