Well Mother as it is about lunch time I think I must stop. Hope you are going strong, didn't hear from any of you last week, but probably I may do this week, at any rate. I hope so. How is Mai behaving herself, anymore attacks of mania? How is Ethelbert Schofield has he recovered sufficiently to deliver further lectures on the early days of B.C.? I heard from a "little bird" that Eric McCallum had left. What an interesting trip he will have going by way of Panama, pretty lucky all right, wish I had been on a trip like that. I don't wonder people were enraged that Tweedale got command of the draft. Pretty rotten deal on Eric I call it.
Much love to you & Pa
your loving son
