I wonder what sort of a time you had in Town before you left, pretty "bon" I bet, anything left out of your bounty?! I am certainly sorry you are not going to be on hand when I get over, I had always hoped we could have another little forefathering in Town, but of course naturally I am mighty glad for your sake that you got off at last. It's quite on the cards Florence may be in Town when I get over, I hope so, we'll have a final tear together. I believe she leaves her Hospital today wonder when she is likely to get her ticket home, there must be an awful rush for passages.

Well you can be on the look out for me about end of May. I'll bring out something in my trunk if possible, that we can celebrate and get a glow on! Bring the Ford down to meet me, you can have some good fun learning to drive it in the meanwhile the two of us ought to get some mileage out of that old bus yet.
