raid while I was there I won't complain. (I spent the following day viewing the damage done at Brixton)

I have since been back on a second trip to London, having had the honor of being chosen as one of a representative band of 270 to represent Canada on Lord Mayors' Day last month. We were worked hard but I enjoyed it thoroughly.

I have spent considerable of my time over here decorating the hospitals and assisting the doctors to demonstrate their utility, yet I am doing fairly well on the whole and expect soon to be able to look at it all as a thing of the past.

Now I guess I had better draw down the blinds on my writing for tonight, so with the heartiest of wishes for the Seasons Greetings to you all; and every hope for prosperity and success from day to day of the year to come, and remembrance and good wishes to the many friends, I remain, Most sincerely yours, Free Killam

Kindly remember me to Fred Harper in particularly.
